Great Falls, Virginia (PRWEB) July 19, 2005
Richard "Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man" Mudrinich goes to Washington DC. The Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) yard safety awareness advocacy has established a presence in the Washington DC region. "I wanted to get closer to the epicenter of many national public service initiatives. The new office is located in Great Falls, Virginia - about 20 miles from the heart of Washington DC. I look forward to presenting my yard safety awareness campaign with the many people and visitors to AmericaÂs capital and beyond," shares Rescue Rick.
Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) is a "caped crusader" working tirelessly to prevent lawn mower accidents and to promote yard safety. "The grass cutting has arrived. Growing grass needs cut, and I want to prevent outdoor power equipment accidents. In essence, I want to blast my public service safety message to create awareness so that people do not get hurt this season," shares Rescue Rick.
Rescue Rick is a renaissance yardman, utilizing various art forms to communicate his safety message. "I want to educate and entertain the general public regarding the importance of yard safety. Lawn mower accidents happen in a split-second, often resulting in life-altering outcomes that sometimes include amputation. I learned this from first-hand experience when I amputated part of my left foot while cutting the grass," shares Rescue Rick.
Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) wants to create awareness regarding the frequency and severity of lawn mower accidents and to promote preventive measures to rescue individuals and families from the dreaded experience associated with yard accidents. Each year, there are about 100,000 lawn mower accidents. Furthermore, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that hospital emergency rooms treat more than 400,000 outdoor garden-tool-related accidents each year. Estimates from past statistics indicate that yardwork accidents fatally injure more than 3,000 people. According to Rescue Rick, "Think before you cut. It hurts. I encourage you to heed the outdoor power equipment safety precautions and to promote grass cut safety."
