Our group worked to fine-tune truck operations skills in forcible entry. This included a variety of entry techniques that enhanced their skills and knowledge. Tower 1 was used during roof operations including directly working off the tower to ventilate. We would like to thank the Key City Fire Conference Workgroup, Capitol Fire Training, and Frederick County Fire Rescue Academy for a great program.

On a side note, one evolution was a timed challenge. From placing the face piece on, breathing air, and then forcing through a secured door was 17 seconds. This was completed by our own Lt. Chad Handley. Strong work.
