Jeff Trevor Dickson : It's not often you get straight forward good video footage put together like this. Thanks for sharing!

Дмитрий Прокин : Thanks for video. I'll firefighter from Russia. And it was very interesting how the U.S. Counterparts. Well done guys))).

Nick Carpenter : I really like the communication technique between each other.

Lotfi Habib : I'm a thief and I'm learning , thanks

Benevolent_Tyrant : What is the difference between cops and firefighters? They both wanted to be firefighters

last chance blueprint : Firefighters are so badass.

Chris Waterman : That ax guy needs glasses

frostlion93 : why not use c4 or tomahawk missile?

TheWtfnonamez : I found this video to be very informative and helpful. Why all the mean comments?

Anthony Hochstetler : I love the content and "spirit" of your videos. Humility and knowledge rolled into one. Keep doing what you're doing. We all need this stuff. Stay safe. 

whatiwant : after thieves got in doing the same thing to the bolt heads, we put huge washer on them, so you cant knock them in.

THE MEDIC : Grind the bolt heads off and you're in!

Chris K : Awesome video, never doubt the irons capabilities.  Stay safe out there brothers 

Derek Farman : Maybe I'm dumb, but this whole time I'm thinking they should just Dremel the bolts off and those drop bars will just fall right off... is that slower? Am I overestimating what a Dremel can cut?

Road Glider : DanDantheFireman brought me here!! 💥

dakota schuh : Lila lee are you a fire fighter? I am guessing not because if you were you would know why firefighters make these videos. To help other fire fighters learn the correct way to do it. I used YouTube to learn tactics for fire fighting before I had all of my training. So to answer your question yes fire fighters do know how to do this, but a new trainee may not. So don't hate on something you don't understand yourself.

IISAVI0NII : Someone needs a slamagan

Sam Denhaag : How do you deal with the heat of your body? Dont you just wanna take off your clothes and pour water over yourselfs? How can you hold for that long in a fire brigade clothes???

Onyx : They didn't try before they pry

chris77777777ify : If the mount was welded things would be different

Bill miller : Safety glasses

Brad Reed : very good video. the communication between the two is simple, clear and affective

Lem0nsquid : well placed strikes

tacticalgamer777 : great video guys your really cool. what's that tool called?

Don Palmer : from drag racing to this o.0

Roger : Great video guys. Interesting, because you only used basic tools, not powered equipment, which probably would have made entry faster. But you may not have power on hand in all situations I guess. Moreover, it helped highlight security door faults. Oh, and pretty sure LiliLee meant perpetrate, but in any case crims are not going to gain entry using these methods, they will just bust down an easy door, so lock up well.

bjtaudio : gee, see the trick is to brace the outside of the door with a 10mm thick ar500 plate weight about 110kg, you can thread not weld, high tensile 12mm bolts into the sheet steel , the wood door acts as a spring to absorb energy, while the Armour steel make it extremely hard and strong, obviously a heavy steel door jam and strong locks, and hinge with anti jemmy bolts, it is impossible to smash bolts out, and further a neat trick is to cover the steel and the bolts with a zinc coating, so it's impossible to see where the fixings are from the outside. Even further bogus honey pot fixings and locks can be used to "waste you're time" so secure means secure.

Phillip A : i like how you don't shy away from the actual effort it takes to do it.

SundownTE : Holy shit that looks like a ton of work

DutchDread : Wait wait wait wait wait.....no women? Wheres the equality here? It's almost as if they're sitting in nice office spaces complaining about how these guys make more money than they do.

Christopher Corrar : that guy needs to learn how to swing an axe like man

Awesome Things : Shot gun, job over.

SBB1809 : What if the drop bar is made out of steel or angle iron and is hinge locked and mounted to the wall on the hinge side and knob side of the door. It wont just break or fall down like the wood did or pop up like the free angle iron. Then what? Oh waite i know the answer. Det cord and C4

seth56guitar : Im an EMT and almost done with Medic school. I really enjoy EMS and wasnt interested in Fire but this might have changed my mind.

J R : Nice a halligan

Rodney Daugherty : Im welding mine

Ryan Johnson : 5:11 "Motherf***er"

y0manda : I can cut those three hinges off with a partner saw in about 10 seconds, the bolts on the drop bar would have seen the end of the blade too. access in under 20 seconds

thephantom1492 : I seriously expected it to be harder than that. A steel door with an iron drop bar... And even if that bar was 2" thick, it wouln't have been much longer to open it up. In fact, it might have been faster as they 'lost' their time bending the bar instead of driving the bolts out... Conclusion, if you want to make something 'theif proof' reinforce the outside! But then they will just use a grinder on the bolts...

Nelvis : Great video, we have the hoolie tool but have never been shown this way of using it, i will certainly pass this on to my UK fire fighting team

Rick Sanchez : The ax guy needs more aiming practice.

Floyd Young : Excellent

Owen Carr : Made me nervous seeing how close that axe got to the guys face around the 4:50 mark

Norvik Boghosian : The guy with sun glasses it was more fast and accurate but I’m more :D but I’m not yet part of Lafd I wish one day:(

IcantSignIn : I'm thinking a handy dandy slipover cheater bar to double the length of that handle would be handy and dandy.

Carlos Vieyra : My respect I'm a firefaghter from mexico

Peterowsky : On one hand, amazing that firefighters can get that, on the other hand, terrifying that they need to take that long, but that goes to show the price of safety vs intruders vs safety from internal elements and the balance between one and the other, in some unfortunate cases including ill advised police forces and destruction of property (and let's not kid ourselves, there will be no police officer patrolling one such door until it gets repaired after they bust it warrant or not, and greater luck getting them to pay for the repairs). BTW, amazing work and demonstration on how emergency crews can get stuff done.

OPBjorn : Imagine a 120 pound little femle firefighter do this...


Kirk Hermary : Very interesting!
