"Conventional forcible entry requires technique, communication, and teamwork!" Double TAP! Nice work brothers.
Conventional forcible entry is the oldest and most versatile method of entry. Usually a two-man team, using a flat head axe and the Halligan Tool accomplishes this task.
It requires skill and technique to master, and at times this may have to be done by one man.
When forcible entry is required, it should be started immediately. A door should be forced in such a manner as to preserve its integrity. If speed is an important consideration in gaining entry, then conventional forcible entry should be considered. Once a firefighter has mastered the skill of using the axe and Halligan Tool (Irons), most doors, even those that are well secured can be forced quickly. With the combination of the axe and Halligan, the forcible entry team can generally force any door or occupancy. It is a simple matter of technique and leverage.
