Chainsaw Training

Bear Paw Scout Camp, Mountain, WI

This is the Basic Chain Saw Operators Course that meets the National Camping Standard FA-712 Trees must be felled and chain saws used in a safe manner.

This is a 2 year certification and will instruct the attendee in proper maintenance, personal protective equipment, and correct technique that are critical components of safe chain saw operation and tree felling.  Bay-Lakes Council properties rely on chain saws to help clear trails, remove deadfalls, clear timber, and stockpile wood for campfires.

Each participant must have with them proper Safety Equipment, to include hard hat, eye protection, hearing protection, leather gloves, protective chaps or pants, leather boots - steel toe prefered.

Each participant must have a fully operational saw with owners manual, a working chain brake, fuel, bar oil, a field maintenance kit, falling ax or pounder and plastic wedges.
