Where firefighters come to talk training

The Sunday Preach:

See the future... (crystal ball not required)

If you are looking to see potential forcible entry challenges in the residential setting, often you need to look no further than your local hardware store.

"Residential building forcible entry is no longer the 'mule kick' on a hollow core wooden door. Formidable forcible entry concerns are becoming prevalent in the single family home" (pg. 79)

Knowing and learning about various security products, specifically those designed to keep us out.... before the fire, can save time and increase efficiency. And that saved time can and will save lives, period.  

The future is indeed bright...
