Firefighter axe is used primarily for breaking down doors and windows. Can be also used for wood cutting or other mundane activities. — In-game description

The Firefighter Axe is a bladed melee weapon and multipurpose tool in DayZ.

The Firefighter Axe is two-handed and found exclusively in Fire stations. Due to low spawn rates, the Firefighter Axe is recognized as an exceptionally rare tool and highly sought after by players. The Firefighter Axe deals significant damage and has a long reach, making it one of the most dangerous melee weapons in the game.

The Firefighter Axe is rivaled only by the Sledgehammer and Sword in damage output, but has the advantage in weighing less. Moreover, the Firefighter Axe shares similar properties to that of the Hatchet and Splitting Axe in that it can also be used to gather Wood Logs from trees or deconstruct certain structures such as Fences.
