The forcible entry door simulator is a large, sturdy door and frame combination that gives firefighters hands-on experience in force-opening locked doors.
The repeated practice made available by the simulator will save valuable time during emergencies.
Department members met with students to go over the finished simulator before loading up the door and putting it to the test.
