Behind the coaching and under the watchful eyes of firefighter Tony Woods, left, Woodinville Weekly reporter Don Mann —who’s never even used a chainsaw — gets to operate the Jaws of Life in a mock vehicle accident demonstration at Woodinville Fire & Rescue Station 31 on Saturday. The annual Woodinville Safety Fair and Pancake Breakfast, sponsored by WF&R and Woodinville Water District, also featured displays centered on winter safety and emergency preparedness, thedangers of electricity, fire extinguisher lessons for kids and tours of the fire trucks. Free pancakes were dished up for breakfast, and free hot dogs were doled out for lunch. PS: The Jaws of Life is HEAVY!
