Wildland Fire Chain Saw Skills & Certifications

Corpsmember Nataly Parra holds a chain saw in preparation of cutting brush during a training exercise at Toland Park in Santa Paula, CA.

CCC firefighters don’t just get experience on wildland hand crews, they get the certifications needed to launch a career in the fire service.

One of the most important certs is for chain saws.

Corpsmembers practice, practice, and practice some more to get their cutting down just right so when they’re on a fire there’s no holding back.
