Ed Combs, Senior Editor of Concealed Carry Magazine, recently shared this with the team here:
For anyone who is unfamiliar with or wants to read up on rescue/egress/etc. kinda stuff, I just made a pretty amazing discovery while double-checking something for an upcoming column:
The FDNY’s “Forcible Entry Reference Guide - Techniques and Procedures” is available for free on the internet.
Just, you know … everything that the nation’s largest fire department’s learned about getting into buildings and defeating locks and barriers and whatnot over the last 100 or so years.
It’s a fascinating read.
