Forcible Entry with Paul DeBartolomeo and Flashfire Industries: September 28, 2019 | Stamford Regional Fire School | Saturday, 28. September 2019

Forcible Entry (September 28, 2019)
This dynamic class combines classroom discussion with hands-on repetition to reinforce the basic tenants of forcible entry. The classroom portion focuses on 3 types of entry (conventional, thru-the-lock, power tools) and provides the students with insight and experiences dealing with each. 
Once outside, students will learn conventional forcible entry techniques using the “shock, gap, set, force” method to force realistic inward opening doors. In addition, students will also learn to force challenging outward opening doors typical in commercial establishments, use the power tools to cut various types of metal, and learn and utilize through-the-lock techniques in order to understand & manipulate various locking mechanism’s.
Flashfire Industries will also be on-site to provide additional training opportunities using their revolutionary mobile training trailer.
