Fire Service Training. Forcible Entry. (Revised).
North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
One of a set of fourteen instructional outlines for use in a course to train novice firemen, this guide covers the topic of forcible entry. Due to the nature of the subject, this part of the course is taught basically by lecture method, although practical applications by students are suggested wherever possible. The major areas of study include types of (1) building construction; (2) forcible entry tools; (3) doors; (4) property barriers, such as hedges and fences; (5) windows; (6) roofs; (7) floors; (8) walls, partitions, and ceilings; and (9) federal property. The objectives for this part of the course are satisfied when the fireman can identify various tools and describe the techniques used in forcible entry. This outline is to be used in conjunction with the Robert J. Brady Transparencies and the International Fire Service Training Association's Manual No. 101, "Forcible Entry, Rope and Portable Fire Extinguisher Practices" (see note). (An outline of the whole course covering all fourteen topics briefly is provided in the first volume of the set--CE 016 662.) (ELG)
