Join Our Chainsaw Instructor Cadre

Terry Harvey

A true, salty Manhattan Beach local, Terry is a retired Captain from Los Angeles County Fire Department, and has spent the last 30 years as a public safety professional. Since retiring from the fire department, Terry has been a public safety consultant, providing investigations, reports, and testimony toward the resolution of personal injury matters involving public and private facilities. As a passionate public safety professional, he is committed to lead by example and believes giving back to communities is essential for personal development and growth.

Team Rubicon’s chainsaw training is among the most popular courses we offer, and we’re looking to add capacity to our ever-growing chainsaw instructor cadre. In 2016, 51 instructors hosted 58 sawyer training events to certify over 400 sawyers with an unwavering appetite for reconstruction.

This train-the-trainer course will help empower our ten regions by providing trained personnel to deliver the Chainsaw Operations Sawyer 1 to volunteers across the country. Click below to learn about the course details and eligibility criteria. Think you have what it takes?

Region IX hosted a chainsaw training event on Operation Firefall just outside of Yosemite National Park.
