Until recently, heavily fortified doors requiring an extensive forcible entry operation were limited to larger cities or select suburbs. Statistics show that crime is being driven to the suburbs and outlying areas causing security-conscious residents to secure their homes using methods that some departments deem new or unfamiliar. Major advancements have been made in locks and locking devices making even simple forcible entry operations more challenging. The days of “kicking down doors” are over. Kicking a door is not only unprofessional, if continued it will certainly result in increasing medical leave, which translates to further staffing issues for your organization. Forcible entry when performed by a trained member or team can mean the difference between a quick well executed operation or complete operational failure and possibly injuries to team members or victims. Utilizing attributes such as knowledge, skill and correct technique instead of simply brute strength will allow passage through today’s forcible entry problems. All forcible entry topics below can be presented individually or as complete in-depth classes. Allow Spartan Rescue Inc. to share our “street-smart” approach to professional forcible entry. Our instructors, the in-depth content, our props, and our ability to provide realistic forcible entry training without an acquired structure puts Spartan Rescue Inc. at the top of market in forcible entry training. Don’t wait until 3am with a report of people trapped to hone your techniques!
This Spartan Rescue Inc. course is the successor of our extremely popular Forcible Entry Operations – Basic course. In this course members will perform Conventional Forcible Entry on inward opening fortified doors with angle-iron, inward opening doors in zero-visibility and in confined spaces, such as the bottom of a basement stair or tight hallway, and practice the baseball bat swing for inward opening doors. Additional conventional forcible entry rotations include four different methods of defeating slide-bolts, defeating carriage bolts and forcing an outward opening fortified door with a shield-guard. Power saw rotations include multiple cuts on window bar props with inboard & outboard saw configurations, gapping and cutting dead-bolts, cutting carriage bolts and foot-bolts, and various methods of roll-down gates and garage doors. Other rotations will include cutting torch operations, utilizing a hydraulic forcible entry tool on inward opening doors, and conventional forcible entry on other high-security devices such as Fox Locks & Police Locks. As always, all props were originated and designed by our instructors or Michael Perrone at Firehouse Innovations for maximum realism, allowing ALL MEMBERS to perform ALL ROTATIONS!
