Applying skills learned in the classroom, students used forcible entry tools to gain access through locked doors, force an entry on an inward-swinging door, and storefront doorways. They also practiced using a rotary saw to cut through rebar and padlock chains.

Door props and the saw cutting station were loaned to Fire Science students by the Orange County Fire Training Center.
