Halligan Tool-Forcible Entry-Rescue 4

Originally invented by a firefighter with the New York City Fire Department (F.D.N.Y.), the Halligan tool is designed to help firefighters gain entry into locked areas of structure fires. With a flat Adze and spike on one end, and a fork on the other, it can be used to pry doors, or remove lock cylinders when combined with a K-Tool.
