This is my Halligan Bar. There are many like it, but this one is mine! A Halligan bar is truly a firefighter’s best friend. The purpose of this course is to understand the Mechanical Advantage of the Halligan bar, and how it benefits us as firefighters during forcible entry. We will go through the theory of mechanical advantage and then we will practice what we have learned on the forcible entry door. We will also discuss techniques to generate force as the axe firefighter. I look forward to sharing with you how the Halligan bar can make us stronger!
