Rescue Rick (sm) - Yard Safety Gear (tm)

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man  (Richard T. Mudrinich) is the father and inventor of yard (garden grass grounds landscaping lawn mowing turf) safety footwear, including boots, galoshes, overshoes, and shoes.  I have designed and developed yard safety gear (tm), including the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Yard Safety Footwear (tm).  In particular, Richard Mudrinich (Rescue Rick) is the first to conceive, design, develop, and build the first of its kind yard safety footwear and gear.  I conceived these ideas, especially the grass cut footwear, after chopping-off part of my left foot with a push mower.  While in the hospital looking out over the Pittsburgh skyline, I made a life-commitment to do whatever I can to prevent yard accidents from happening to other people and animals.  Since I cut-off part of my left paw, I focused initially on developing yard safety performance footwear.  I am the first person in the world to conceive footwear specific to lawn mowing and yardwork - especially involving outdoor power equipment.  In essence, I am living the life of a yard safety super hero.  I want to rescue people and animals from getting hurt.  Thus, I have designed yard safety gear and armor (tm).  In addition, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) proposes the creation and establishment of yard safety display centers (tm) wherever outdoor power equipment is sold and serviced.

Rescue Rick (sm) - Yard Safety Educational Software, Comics, Film, Radio & Television

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Educational Tools (tm)

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) proposes to develop a new, first-of-its-kind educational Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Educational Software DVD/CD-ROM (tm) to help people learn more about yard safety (tm), leading to the prevention of lawn mower accidents.  The Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Educational Software DVD/CD-ROM (tm) will provide in-depth information on yard safety collaborated and endorsed by leading professionals in leading amputee, health, insurance, and outdoor power equipment organizations.  The goal is to give people convenient and easy-to-understand information about these highly preventable lawn mower and related yard equipment accidents.  In addition, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) is developing edutainment safety software utilizing serious games technology.   Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) encourages health insurance companies to offer reasonable discounts or rebates to individuals and groups that complete the yard safety educational DVD/CD-ROM.  Rescue Rick (sm) suggests that the DVD/CD-ROM be made available in both primary and secondary markets where grass cut products are sold and serviced.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) proposes an easy-to-read educational comic book that features Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) delivering yard safety operating tips and preventive measures.  The Rescue Rick Comic Book (tm) is intended to supplement (not replace) the lawn equipment operator's manual.  In addition, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) envisions the comic book to expand into the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Cartoon (sm) that delivers a real public service message that addresses real accidents and threats in the yard.  The cartoon will educate and entertain both children and adults alike.  Also, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) has created the Coloring & Activity Book (tm) (see Merchandise Shop web page for details).

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) wants to enter the world of children educational television.  In particular, it will draw attention to my nine toes with a basic math theme.  For instance, a children television show could have a brief segment where the camera zooms in on a normal set of feet with ten toes.  The announcer (Rescue Rick) counts 1-10 with the respective numbers appearing on the television screen.  Then, the camera pans over to my feet, with the counting numbers 1 through 9 appearing on the screen.  The announcer (Rescue Rick) will say, "Ten take away one." Then, the children scream, "NINEEEEEEEEEEEE!  The big toe piggy went to the market and did not come back."  Furthermore, the television segment introduces children to the world of disabled persons - some people are different and we all live together.  Eventually, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) would like to expand into cartoons, movies, radio, and theatre.  The driving force behind the use of the various educational mediums and artforms is to amplify the yard safety message through repetition and variation.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) develops the storyboard for a yard safety videotape - the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Yard Safety Video (tm).  In addition, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) would like to make and distribute a  feature film or short film on the life and mission of the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) yard safety awareness campaign.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) continues to pursue opportunities to make appearances on radio to promote yard safety awareness and to explore solutions.

Rescue Rick (sm) - Yard Safety Food

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) presents a few food-related ideas to maintain high-energy levels while you grass cut.
 
Oats: A serving of oats provides plenty of slow-release carbohydrates, which will give you more sustained energy than, say, processed sugar. Oatmeal has also been shown to lower cholesterol. Have it for breakfast or anytime, and add skim milk and dried fruit for extra nutritional punch. Instant oatmeal offers much the same benefits as rolled oats, but avoid presweetened brands, which have a high sugar content.  If oats are good for a work horse, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) suggests that oats are good for the grass cut person.
 
Sports Drinks:  Electrolytes like sodium, potassium, and chloride are lost in sweat.  Sports drinks help put back electrolytes and stimulates thirst to drink more fluids and maintain hydration.  Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) suggests that sports drinks give working muscles more energy to help fight fatigue and provide a mental edge - stay alert and stay safe.
 
Often times, yard accidents happen due to fatigue.  Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) offers just a few suggestions to maintain high-energy levels to get the job done.
