- : Other - Nov 07 - Grand Lake Stream - Chain Saw Safety Class - Grand Lake Stream School Building - Upcoming Washington County Maine Events
Join the Downeast Lakes Land Trust for a chain saw safety class to brush up on techniques, or to learn a whole new skill. According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission there are over 28,500 chain saw injuries each year. While chain saws are relatively common and may seem simple to use, they require training and proper safety precautions. This program will cover personal protective equipment (PPE); chainsaw safety features and maintenance; tree-felling techniques; and limbing, as well as an afternoon session which will include a tree-felling demonstration and a question and answer session. Participants should bring a bag lunch, water and wear clothing appropriate for the weather as the afternoon session which will be taught in the field. The program cost is $20 which can be paid on the day of the event. Please register in advance by contacting the Downeast Lakes Land Trust either by calling (207) 796-2100 or email email@example.com.
