Dear Rescue Rick Fans:
In September 2003, I had a serious lawn mower accident, resulting in the partial amputation of my left foot. I had a series of extensive surgical operations. I want to thank all of the medical professionals for their care and talents. Nonetheless, I have had a long road toward recovery.
Consequently, I want to create awareness regarding the frequency and severity of lawn mower accidents. Furthermore, I am compelled to present some lawn mower safety measures with hopes to significantly minimize the occurrences and magnitudes of these costly, life-altering, mutilating, and painful events. I want to find a cure for yard accidents, in particular grass cut accidents. I believe that the solution partially rests in the analysis of human behavior via cognitive psychology, etc. Nonetheless, we all need to improve.
Each year, there are over 100,000 lawn mower accidents. Furthermore, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that hospitals 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. In addition, the estimated medical, legal, insurance and disability costs and other expenses of these injuries are over a billion dollars each year. I want to present preventive measures to rescue (hence, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) - a real-life caped crusader for yard safety) individuals and families from going through the dreaded experience associated with lawn mower accidents. Eventually, I want to cover the entire spectrum of outdoor power equipment and yard safety.
Furthermore, I want to give special thanks to my mother, family, and friends for their concern, grace, and support throughout my left foot ordeal.
Think before you cut. It hurts!™ I encourage you to heed the lawn mower safety precautions and to promote grass cut safety. Please send gifts to:
