Care and Maintenance of Forcible Entry Tools

Course overview

Well-maintained tools and equipment are critical to a timely and effective response to emergency situations. Firefighting tools are vulnerable to damage from impact, heat, moisture, and exposure to ultraviolet effects, as well as wear due to regular use.

This course describes how to keep forcible entry tools in top condition for use when needed, with a special focus on the parts of common handheld tools that must receive regular care and maintenance.
