Region II planned and hosted a Chainsaw Operator training in April that was just fantastic. Even though I’ve gotten chainsaw training from during my time in the Fire Service, those experiences were primarily focused on opening roofs for even operations. After Hurricane Sandy I got a lot of hands-on experience working through the many, many downed trees on our property…but without ‘real’ training. Youtube does have a great deal on the topic, but nothing like learning from experts in person.
Our instructors, Alan and John, came down from Region I and were top notch. Some of the best field training I’ve ever received. The group was attentive, safety focused, and fun to be around. Below are just some of the pictures that Region II posted. Again, these are not my photos and are part of this public album
