It’s important to mention that when forcing entry we should start our approach from the lock side FIRST. Attacking the hinges should be a LAST resort due additional obstacles and security measures that can be hidden from view on the inside of the door - Including padlocks, slide bolts, security hinges and door closers - All of which can be located on the hinge side of the door.<br /> <br /> Beyond this, FFs should also consider bringing both a set of Irons as well as a circular saw (with steel cutting blade) up to the scene. Having both available will increase your tactical options and allow an efficient transition from Plan A to Plan B, etc.<br /> <br /> This video is NOT a recommendation for attacking hinges - It was produced to simply give the viewer a perspective of the time and effort needed to accomplish this task. The best advice I can give is to become proficient in the use of the Irons - When properly implemented by knowledgeable and experienced operators they will be effective in defeating many if not most of the doors you will encounter.<br /> <br /> The SAW is a viable option &amp; should be a piece of equipment in your F/E arsenal, but remember these points:<br /> 1. The Irons are easier to carry - When split up, 2 FFs can have them in their possession at all times.<br /> 2. A set of Irons should be on every rig where saws may not.<br /> 3. The Irons will always start, will not run out of gas, or get flooded, or not operate in smoke - Saws can &amp; do malfunction versus the effectiveness of the Irons is based more on the user than the tools themselves.<br /> <br /> Train, Be Prepared, Stay Safe, Make the Save - SURVIVE!<br /> Dale G.

In this video firefighter Lydia Rivera (she looks like she is fighting, but no) after being instructed on the skill, demonstrates how to stop a leaking sprinkler head. The water pressure is about 50 psi (100 less than a real system) but serves the purpose for practicing the objective. This is a way of refreshing the "forgotten skill" or the simple ones. All you need are: 2 - 1"x1" wedge, 2 - rubber or leather mallets, a leaking sprinkler head; for this you only need someone with a little plumbing skill, 4" of 1/2" copper pipe, a 1/2" ball valve, an universal fitting (to attach a garden hose), a 1/2" female connector and a sprinkler head. Solder all the pieces and attach it to a solid structure. You are ready for training.<br /> Prior to the field training a class on types of sprinkler heads was given, for refresher.<br /> Enjoy.
