THIS Is Why We Keep Talking about Fire Rescue Saw Safety

Firefighting Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesWe’ve posted articles about rotary saw and chain saw safety here before (like this and this), because you run a greater chance of getting hurt by your saw if you don’t use it safely.

After all, saw blades and chain saw chains are designed to cut wood, concrete and even metal. What do you think’s going to happen to you if you get hit by one of these blades or chains?

This FireRescue1 article by Jason Poremba drives this point home better than most. It has all the usual tips, like storing abrasive blades away from gasoline (a hazard that you can eliminate by using the solid steel Fire Rescue Safety Blade, by the way). However, it also has video of what happens when things go sideways and firefighters get cut or burnt by their own saws.
