At SAFE Firefighter, LLC, our philosophy on forcible entry is based on three basic ideas 1) keep it simple 2) match the technique to the problem (good size-up) and 3) trust the technique. While simple in explanation, its not always as simple in application. For the most part, most fireground forcible entry problems can be solved with the irons. Though we admit that a K12 is becoming more important to our initial forcible entry tool cache, the reality is that not every rig has one. For that reason, when we see a forcible entry problem we’re not too sure about, we’ll throw it out to social-media-land and go fishin’ for some insight. We know a K12 will solve most of these problems, but we’re more interested in the conventional methods that we’re all equipped for.
Yesterday, we posted an outside view of a Charlie Side door with some yum-yums we weren’t familiar with. We were lucky enough to find people on our SAFE Firefighter, LLC Facebook page who had seen the same things, recognized them and offered some insight. We were also fortunate that someone linked an article from Brothers In Battle, LLC on the Upper Left Coast. Please give it a read and let us know what you think.
