The training focuses on chainsaw handling, operation and maintenance. The free class is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 2 at the city Public Works Operations Building, 670 First Ave. N.E. The class size is limited, so interested residents should register at the Issaquah Citizen Corps Council website, www.issaquahcitizencorps.com.
Equipment is provided to attendees. Participants must wear heavy boots and provide personal preparedness equipment, including gloves, eye protection and a helmet.
