Chainsaw Refresher Course Slated for February 24, 2018

US Forest ServiceThe US Forest Service will be conducting a chainsaw refresher class in the Tusquitee Ranger District on February 24, 2018 (and 25th if a second day is needed for field evaluations). We can accommodate a maximum class size of 20 people. First priority will be for those folks whose saw cards will expire in 2018, second priority is new sawyers wanting certification, third priority will be all others who expire after 2018.

New sawyers, please do not attempt to qualify if you are not comfortable handling a chainsaw or if you do not have any prior experience. Current 1st aid and CPR will be required prior to the class.

The class is filling fast and expected to be full prior to the January 30th deadline. Please register now. If you are certified and unsure of your status, please contact Heath Emmons below.
