YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Kevin Byrnes III completed his Eagle Scout Project last week and it was destroyed within minutes—just as intended.
Byrnes, a Lakeland High School student and member of Boy Scouts of America Troop 174, built what is known as a “breach wall” for the Yorktown Heights Volunteer Fire Department. Firefighters train on these walls by breaking and crawling through them.
The fire department will repair the sheetrock as needed for future training sessions, said his father, Kevin Byrnes Jr.
His father thanked Lenny Sustic, his son’s project coach and former Cub Scout co-den leader, for helping with the project.
