GREAT FALLS, Virginia (PRWEB) January 7, 2006
Richard Mudrinich, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™, seeks to establish the Yard Safety Foundation (sm). Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is a caped crusader and yard safety super hero working tirelessly to prevent lawn mower accidents and to promote yard safety. “I am the first yard safety super hero in the history of the world. I want to rescue people and animals from getting hurt from a yard accident. I seek to raise funds in order to establish the Yard Safety Foundation (sm). I want to find a cure for accidents through research and to create awareness through education and entertainment, especially after chopping-off part of my left foot with a walk-behind power lawn mower while cutting the grass. I seek to develop strategic partnerships and sponsors,” 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. “Wear a Rescue Rick T-shirt™ to pass along the yard safety message so that people and animals do not get hurt. Rescue Rick is here today so that yard accidents go away.”
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!"
