A Halligan is a special tool commonly used in the fire and rescue service. It was designed by and named after Hugh Halligan, a First Deputy Fire Commissioner in the New York City Fire Department. The Halligan is a multipurpose prying tool consisting of a claw (or fork), a blade (or adze), and a pick, which is especially useful in quickly breaking through many types of locked doors. The adze or fork end of the tool can be used to break in through an outward swinging door by forcing the tool between the door and the doorjamb and prying the two apart. Along with a K-tool and the adze or fork end a lock can easily be pulled. There are many other uses of the Halligan tool, including vehicle rescue and opening of walls.
