About the event

This course is an instructor-led class intended to be presented at the local level. The course lessons provide introduction to the function, maintenance and use of internal combustion engine powered chainsaws and their tactical woodland fire application. Field exercises support entry level training for firefighters with little or no previous experience in operating a chainsaw, providing hands-on cutting experience in surroundings similar to fire line situations. We will be out in the tress for about 7-9 hours on days 2 and 3.
