Drillground Request Form
SCHEDULE NOW FULL. ACCEPTING NO OTHER SPRING APPLICATIONS
If your Department has a roof prop session scheduled, PLEASE ensure some saw use and safety familiarization is conducted before the drill. If your members have never operated the saw or for a long time, it is wise to do this beforehand. The prop is not the place to teach someone how to hold the saw or start it. Please stress that a running saw should NEVER be lifted any more than 6" above the roof deck. We are seeing many safety issues with this. We have provided a power saw safety guideline to use for discussion before your drill so your experience here is productive.
If you are scheduled for a roof prop drill this year.
You can only send 10 people to a vent prop drill. Please do not bring more
This is to ensure everyone attending gets to do cuts
The prop is not designed to accommodate too many at one time
