The course lessons provide introduction to the function, maintenance and use of internal combustion engine powered chain saws, and their tactical wildland fire application. Field exercises support entry level training for firefighters with little or no previous experience in operating a chain saw, providing hands-on cutting experience in surroundings similar to fireline situations.

 

Objectives

  • Define and apply chain saw safety standards as required by OSHA and agency handbooks, manuals, directives, and owner’s manuals.
  • Identify and demonstrate basic chain saw operation, troubleshooting, maintenance, and safety features.
