We are available for a Forcible Entry Drill Session at your firehouse. I will come to your firehouse with the Multi-Force Door and other props to conduct the most in-depth forcible entry drill your department has ever had.
The unmistakable increase in the forcible entry skill level of your members and the added confidence level will no doubt be very much apparent at the conclusion of this forcible entry drill session. This I guarantee!
There is no better way to learn a skill than hands-on training. I am sure you will agree. This is also a great way to try out the Firehouse Innovations’ forcible entry props. I guarantee you will be very happy you did.
Please see some photos and comments below taken from some of the forcible entry training sessions we have conducted in the past.

Thank you, stay safe and God bless,

FDIC 2006 - 2012 - HOT Drills - Indianapolis, Indiana

Hello, I would like to begin by saying that I had the distinct pleasure of taking your HOT class at FDIC this past week. I must say that it was the most informative and beneficial forcible entry classes that I have ever taken. I walked away from your class confident that I would be able to work through a forcible entry problem if I encounter one in the future. That leads me to my question.

I am the Asst. Training officer at my department. I am interested in knowing how much it will cost to purchase one of your doors. My department is steadily busy, but do not encounter forcible entry opportunities frequently, and I am afraid that our skills are lacking. I would be greatly appreciative if you could also give me a quote on any training you provide similar to the FDIC class to see if that is an option for my department financially. 

Again, thank you for the opportunity to take your class and learn from your knowledge. I eagerly await your response concerning the door.

Fort Meyers Fire Academy

"Recently we conducted training at our Fire Academy using 3 of your doors. The training encompassed over 75 companies and over 300 personnel. These doors were put through the paces and held up flawlessly as well as provided a level of training and realism unmatched anywhere else. You also provide a level of customer service and support other companies should admire".

Lt. Jason Martin/ Fort Myers Fire Academy Director


I was one of the attendees who had the distinct pleasure of attending your hands-on training session recently held at Sayville Fire Dept. The guys from my fire department that attended that day cannot stop taking about the excellent experience that you guys provided. As we are all aware, in the volunteer service, it's a rarity that we get the opportunity to get a vacant house where we can practice forcible entry.  And let's face it, the forcible entry props that we build in the rear of the firehouse or at the training centers, just don't simulate the "real thing". Your door allows the brothers to train like it's the real thing each and every time and allows them the unparallel ability to practice all the forcible entry techniques necessary in today's fire service. Whether they're a new probie or a seasoned veteran, every firefighter is guaranteed to walk away with an increased sense of knowledge and confidence in the art of conventional forcible entry. With over 18 years in the fire service, I can undoubtedly say that your multi-force door is the best forcible entry prop that I have ever had the opportunity to use. The finest compliment I can give to you is my continuous praise and admiration of the level of experience and technique that you provide to all that attend your training sessions.  I will forever be a supporter of your multi-force door and have urged the need for your instruction to my fire department and to our neighboring fire departments as well.  Thank you again for the experience and I look forward to establishing a semi-annual refresher for my entire department to appreciate.

Locust Valley Fire Department - Long Island, New York 

On Thursday, August 27th the members of the LVFD were treated to a special training session with Mike Perrone from Firehouse Innovations. Mike is the founder and creator of the Multi-Force Forcible Entry Door System and a 28-yr member of the FDNY.

Mike, along with another FDNY member, Danny, held a 3-hour training session focusing on all aspects of forcible entry including the importance of gapping, conventional forcible entry, inward opening doors, outward opening doors, wood jams, angle iron/high security doors, etc.... The members of the LVFD learned more in this short 3 hour span than they learned in the many classes they have attended at our own Fire Academy.


"Mike, I’d just like to take a moment to thank you and Danny for a great training.  Your door is basically a dream come true to the fire service and to forcible entry training.  The ability to force multiple types of doors and in both directions in training has been a long time coming, and you’ve done it!

As you’ve always taught, be sure to have a plan A, B, C and so on, for the worst case scenario.  It’s great to be able to actually demonstrate each plan of attack as the door gets harder to force.  Your Multi-Force door allows the newest probie, to learn size-up and tool placement, as well as challenging senior members with extra wood or placing some angle iron that is so prominent in today’s  high security world, that hinders our entry every day.

When both a probie and a former Chief of Department with 20 plus years, each approached  you to tell you how much they’ve learned in a few short hours about the art of forcible entry and the halligan, I think you have succeeded in keeping the fire service tradition of passing on knowledge alive.

The truest recommendation that I can make to anyone is to simply purchase your door, and / or have a training session.  It is a great training prop and will give all members a great experience in forcing doors, over and over without the worry of having to fix it each time.  This tool will prepare the entire membership for the hardest doors they will face while operating on the fire ground".

- Bill Bedell / Floral Park Fire Department, Floral Park, NY

"My name is Tony Iliano and attended the drill put on by Perry FD on Monday April 6th. My Lieutenant is big on forcible entry and not just getting in a door, but like you said, being a professional about it. Mike, you have come up with one heck of a simulator.  The beating that door took and the turnaround time for teams to rotate through was great. The information you and Dan possess and shared with us can't be stressed enough. I've been a fireman for 8 years and that was one of the best drills, personally, I've attended.  Some fireman think they can use the irons and get through doors once they get sworn in with no practice. The drill today showed how silly that is as most of us at one point or another had to be shown the how's and why's we do things. I'm looking forward to showing the guys back at the station what we learned.  I really can't wait to use these skills on the fireground. Thanks again and best of luck to you".

 - Tony Iliano / Painesville Township Fire Department, Painesville, OH

"Mike what an outstanding product!  And the training that you and Dan gave us was unbelievable, I learned more about forcible entry and the many different ways to use a halligan bar in four hours then I have in the past ten years.  T he little nuances or as you like to say “the power of the adz” blew me away.  We have had the product since April 6, 2009 (only four days now), but we have yet been able to walk past it without setting it up for a quick force.  It does my heart good to walk out into the bays and see one or two guys just playing with it.  Before this prop, if we were lucky, we would only be able to force one or two doors every couple of years, never really having an opportunity to try out different techniques and only a few guys being able to do the force before the door and frame were damaged beyond realistic value or using props that are good for techniques but just unrealistic.  The days of us using/teaching one or two ways of forcing a door are now gone and the let’s “pretend” days are dead and buried.  Now I can rotate an eight man crew through four different techniques with realistic resistance and that beloved popping/cracking sound in less than two hours, with no down time between forces!  I have already noticed the confidence level of my crew, from the oldest to the youngest, increasing with every force we do".

- Lieutenant Tim Sitz / Perry Joint Fire District, Perry, OH

"Our department was preparing to open a forty million dollar training facility and we were in need of a forcible entry door prop. A co-worker attended the forcible entry class at FDIC and told me the prop they used in the class was awesome. I discovered the door prop was built by Firehouse Innovations, Corp. Since we have purchased the door prop over two hundred of our members have used it. The evaluations we received from members who used the prop are extremely favorable and the common denominator is how realistic it feels. To have that many firefighters use something, and all of them say only good things about it, is unheard of in the fire service. The door is sturdy and rigid and I anticipate many years of trouble-free, hands-on training".

Prospect Park Fire Company, Delaware County, Pennsylvania

"Mike, Thanks again from all the members of Prospect Park Fire Co. and the neighboring departments who had the pleasure of attending today.  We very much enjoyed the class and the door prop. The techniques you and Dan reviewed will surely enhance the skills, young and old, of all the members who attended. Your door prop by far is the most versatile and practical of the doors we have looked at. The door prop provides excellent opportunities for training members in all facets of conventional forcible entry which has become a lost art".
