The Vashon Makerspace will present a chainsaw fundamentals class on Thursday, May 9th, from 6 to 8 PM in the Gallery at the O Space, 18870 103rd Ave SW. The class is a broad introduction to chainsaw use. It covers the care and maintenance of the chainsaw, basic chainsaw safety, techniques of use, and tips on how to handle a variety of situations that islanders may encounter after a storm or windfall. This is a classroom demonstration event, there will be no field work or hands-on chainsaw work. We will also cover some of the additional emergency equipment that is available through the Vashon Tool Library.
