ACMU members complete chainsaw safety training

To use a chainsaw on trails on US Forest Service land, you must have Forest Service chainsaw safety training and CPR/First Aid training. A chainsaw safety class was held Sunday, June 26 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. in Grand Marais.

Thanks to all the folks who time out of their busy lives to attend this training offered by our trail partner, the US Forest Service.

Jon Benson of the USFS did a great job making the training interesting and informative. Attendees agreed it wasn’t such a bad way to spend a summer day.
