Roller Shutter Doors no problem for newly trained fire officers

We reported back in August, 2011 that Excel Roller Shutters, Huddersfield had been working in partnership with West Yorkshire Fire Service’s training department to offer their expertise on how to gain ‘quick and safe’ entry into buildings that have roller shutters installed.

That training was put to great use on 23rd August when Halifax Green Watch, supported by Elland and Illingworth, were called to a fire at Ryburn Valley High School, near Halifax. Faced a with a series of high security roller shutter doors they were able to put into practice the new access techniques learnt in training, using the new methods of entry kit. Fire officers made short work of getting past the roller-shutter door and used the lock-pulling method to get past the internal door. By using the new roller shutter access techniques, officers managed to reduce damage to the doors and gave crews time to cover up all the schools computers before applying water to the fire thus saving thousands in unnecessary damage.
