Chainsaw Safety Training

Events such as Conclaves and Alumni work weekends benefit from trained volunteers. Cutting is always done at the discretion of the Camp Ranger and/or council staff.
OSHA Required Equipment: Helmet with screen face shield, Ear protection, Chainsaw chaps and Chainsaw boots. You will need to have your own chain saw, fuel, bar oil and safety gear.
