For the past two Monday nights, April 19th & 26th, members of Flourtown ventured down the Blue Route to the Prospect Park Fire Company in Delaware County for some hands on forcible entry training. Crews got to experience as real world as possible training on an impressive door prop built by Firehouse Innovations. Multiple scenarios were conducted on both inward and outward swinging doors, using a variety of forcible entry tools and techniques. This training better prepares our firefighters for making quick access into a building which could lead to faster rescues of trapped occupants.
Our sincere thanks go out to the Prospect Park Fire Company for allowing us the oppurtunity to train with the door prop. A special thanks to Fire Chief Mike Signora for conducting the training.
Thank you also to Lt. Chris Manning for setting up this training
