Cornell Cooperative Extension of Warren County is set to hold a chainsaw safety workshop on Monday, October 21st.
Mike Burns will present an instructional program for the occasional chainsaw user on safe operation and risk mitigation. The workshop will cover the anatomy of a chainsaw, maintenance of a chainsaw, what safety gear to wear, proper cutting of standing and laying trees, and more.
This program is geared toward the person who needs to operate a saw occasionally but not as a vocation. This workshop is not suitable for NYLT or DEC certification.
The workshop will be held at the CCE Warren County office at 377 Schroon River Road, Warrensburg, and will run from 10 am to 1 pm.
There is no cost for this workshop but pre-registration is required. To register or for more information call (518) 668-4881 or, email Dan Carusone at [email protected]
