  • Forcible Entry Simulator

    We have a old metal door and door frame we saved from the old station and would like to build a forcible entry simulator. Just looking for ideas as to what other departments have come up with. Pictures/sketches are greatly appreciated.

    We took an old metal door, took some 4 or 5 inch wide angle iron and welded a frame for the size of the door. Just be sure to build a stable platform and good welds. Also where the knob would be we just removed the handles and built "metal hinges" if you will, with some half inch wood sticks to simulate the lock. Took about 3 hours to build, weld and finish the little stuff. We use it all the time and it works great. All you need is some free time, cutting torch, welder, and be a little creative.

        Agreed on VES, as I recall there was a post on this forum about a couple of months ago on a homemade one. I just can't seem to track it down.

          It won't last very long for forcing the door training. I would concentrate more on through the lock training.

          We have several lock sets mounted in pieces of wood so people can practice using "K" tool keys.

          Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

          "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


          Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.
