“Forced Entry” Sculpture 

Exciting news! In January, Harris County ESD No. 24/Aldine Fire & Rescue installed their very own, “Forced Entry” sculpture, making it the 3rd in the country.

Chief Parker, Chief of Harris County ESD No. 24/Aldine Fire & Rescue, and his fellow firefighters, requested a customize “Force Entry” sculpture to be placed in front of their headquarters. To customize this piece I added “ALDINE” to the back of the bunker, specific coloring to the gear to mimic Aldine bunker gear color and an Aldine custom shield. Harris County Fire Department also requested a custom bronze plaque that is placed on front of the base to represent Aldine Firefighters. The plaque reads:

“The Chosen Path”
For those who paved the way – For those who serve – For those to come

Upon delivery of the sculpture, Chief Parker wrote: 

“We wish to convey our sincerest gratitude to Honorable Sculptures Inc, By Austin Weishel, for the unwavering commitment to fulfilling our expectations for this magnificent sculpture. The attention to detail and artistic prowess have exceeded our expectations, and we are delighted with the final statue.”

I am thrilled how ‘Forced Entry’ turned out for Aldine Fire & Rescue.  Thank you Harris County for commissioning me for this work. It was an honor to customize this work for you. 

This limited edition bronze firefighter statue is life-size, standing at just over 6.9 feet tall including the stainless steal base. “Forced Entry” is available for commission and can be customized to your liking including colors, name, shield, helmet. This custom bronze sculpture is proudly handmade in Colorado, USA.
