John Buckheit describes using a power saw to overcome a chain-link fence.
[BLANK_AUDIO] [MUSIC] Hi, I'm John Buckheit. I'm back with fire engineering for another training minutes. We've been continuing our series, we've been looking at chain link fences and how to get through them. Today what we're going to look at is how to use the power saw to get through these chain link fences. Its a very quick, efficient and no nonsense approach, its going to get the job done. Provided you're willing to do that type of damage and you have the equipment and it, it fits your scenario. When we look at these fences we can attack three different point. We have our prop set up here, which just shows what a typical setup would be. You can either attack the attachment which is a, power shed and bolt. Or you could attack the tension band, come in and cut that. Or you could cut the fabric itself. If you cut the fabric you have to watch out because as that rotary blade spins, it's possible that it can grab one of these strands. And whip that around and cause injuries. So you want to use full PPE when your cutting this fabric. And just be cognizant that you can keep others away and have a circle of safety around yourself. With that Timmy is going to come in and he's going to show you how to do this [SOUND] [SOUND] So Timmy just demonstrated three ways you can take the power saw and get through these fences. You can either attack the hardware that holds the tension clamp to the line post or end post. You could cut the clamp itself. Or you could cut the fabric as he did in the last, part of his evolution. If you do cut that fabric, try and cut as close to the line post as possible. You're gonna get less reaction from the fence and it's gonna be easier to cut. Thanks for watching, I'm John Buckhight. This has been another Training Minutes. [MUSIC]
