By Web Team
November 17, 2023

On Thursday November 16th members of the Cutchogue Fire Department gathered at HQ for the regular monthly training night. Each month on the third Thursday of the month CFD has a dedicated in-house training night that covers a variety of topics

This month's training focussed on Forcible entry and the use of power saws on commercial-style doors.

25 Firefighters were on hand for the night's training.

The drill began with a review of power saw operations and the responsibilities and importance of the forcible entry team.

After a review of the techniques and tools, Firefighters had a chance to practice in a series of evolutions

First, using an axe and halligan tool, commonly referred to as a set of "Irons", firefighters forced open a series of doors using conventional techniques on a forcible entry simulator.

Then participants practiced their skills with the power saw, cutting at a series of different stations simulating different locks and styles of metal doors.

Everyone had a chance to test and refine their skills in preparation of real-life scenarios in which they may have to rapidly gain entry to a home or burning building.

The training lasted 2 hours

Thank you to Firehouse Training Plus for a great night of training.

Units: CFD - Tradition - Pride - Dedication
