It’s no secret members of Team Rubicon have an affinity for the saws with chains. Last weekend, another team crushed the Train-the-Trainer Chainsaw Operations course in Franktown, CO from June 24-27. These men and women will provide chainsaw training to members across the country, so we can be certifiably unstoppable when high winds and flood waters knock down trees with little warning.
Congratulations to the following individuals putting the chainsaw instructor cadre at 47:
Region 3 – Chris Wells
Region 8 – Chung Ta
Region 8 – Christopher J. Nowak
Region 6 – Jacob Nilz
Region 10 – Chris Martin
These members will join the cadre after conducting additional field hours:
Region 5 – Philip Jacobs
Region 8 – Nicholas Stoffel
Region 8 – Joshua Livingston
Region 8 – Dave Story
Region 10 – Coleman LaFazio
Region 10 – Rebekah La Due
