This past Tuesday evening, North Penn was invited to station 80 for a group training held by them. Upper Gwynedd Fire Department went over forcible entry using a door prop they purchased. Using a halligan and ax, as well as what is referred to a rabbit tool, members of both 62 and 80 had plenty of hands on with the door. Along with the door prop, there was also a window prop, made by members of station 80. Using the window prop, members were able to practice bailing out, removal of a patient and entering a window off a ladder.Thank you to Upper Gwynedd Fire Department for inviting us
