FORCIBLE ENTRY REFERENCE GUIDE
TECHNIQUES AND PROCEDURES
The effort to complete this manual is dedicated to the sons of Captain John Vigiano, Firefighter John
T. Vigiano II (Ladder Company 132) and Detective 2nd Grade Joseph V. Vigiano (NYPDEmergency Services Truck 2) and all of the first responders who gave their lives on
September 11, 2001
The first responders that fateful day, were true professionals who knew the risks and dangers that
awaited them in those buildings. They never wavered or deviated from their assignments when they
entered the towers. They provide inspiration to us as family members and as members of the FDNY.
It is our hope that this manual will benefit other young professionals in their careers as firefighters.
