Training Minutes: Door Removal

In this Training Minutes video, Joe Alvarez demonstrates how to remove a door so that it doesn’t close behind firefighters, trapping them in a burning building. He shows two methods, one with a hook and one with a halligan.

These videos are for training demonstration purposes only. When you perform these techniques at emergency scenes and evolutions, be sure to wear full PPE and adhere to your agency’s procedures and policies.
