Forcible entry is an essential fireground function. Fire service tools are grouped by their function: striking, prying, cutting, and pulling as well as task-specific tools, such as through-the-lock or large wall breach tasks. Most forcible entry tools work on the principle of leverage.
Forcible entry tools must be in workable condition and used in accordance with their designed function.
