OSU Extension Trumbull County will be offering a chainsaw safety class on April 8th, 2017 from 9am-noon at the Trumbull County Ag and Family Education Center in Cortland, OH. This class is designed to help you handle and operate your chainsaw safely when you are clearing out a fence row, cleaning up after a storm, or any other time that you may use your chainsaw. The class will begin inside with an overview of protective equipment designed to minimize injury before moving to basic saw maintenance. We will cover saw basics, how to perform a safety check, and how to keep your chain sharp. We will wrap up the morning with demonstrations outside to show proper tree felling and bucking techniques.
Cost for the class is $30/person and can be paid in advance or at the door. Pre-registration is required by April 5th, so please call 330-638-6783 to reserve your space.
