Monday Night Training: Forcible Entry
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

March 20, 2023

Members of the Limerick Fire Department participated in forcible entry training. Members were divided into 3 groups. They used forcible entry as a means of access to an otherwise secured structure. Members went over mechanical advantage techniques for inward-swinging doors, outward-swinging doors, and removal of outward-facing hinges. For the practical drills, one group acted as a truck company to force the door and another group acted as the engine company with Squad 51 to stretch a line into the "building". This drill allowed members to train on masking up while gloved and controlling the door. One of the Engineers went over through-the-lock practical skills as well with a k-tool. Some other members also trained on the use of the new Special Service 51.

During the training, at 7:46 pm, the department was dispatched to a fire alarm at El Límon. Ladder 51, Engine 51 and Command 51 responded. Both trucks rejoined training a short time later.
