Yard Safety Awareness (sm) - Think before you cut. It hurts. (tm)

Rescue Rick (sm) - International Yard Safety Trail

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) plans to ride a lawn mower across America as part of a national yard safety rollout campaign, thus establishing the International Yard Safety Trail (tm).  He wants to create awareness with regards to the frequency and severity of lawn mower accidents.  Therefore, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) wants to charter a course and grass cut a trail through towns and alongside highways across America from Coast-to-Coast and continuing on around the globe, with several demonstrations on the ferocious capabilities of outdoor power equipment as well as presentations on yard safety to prevent yard accidents.  I realize that outdoor power equipment manufacturers have made great strides to enhance the safe use of their various yard equipment.  Nonetheless, there are still about 100,000 lawn mower and 400,000 garden-tool-related accidents each year. 

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) seeks to collaborate with various organizations to educate and participate during this grand expedition.  I want to develop some relationships with various organizations including, government, government agencies, industry, and non-profit organizations to literally roll across America and the around the globe promoting yard safety.  I want to showcase leading experts involved with yard safety, healthcare professionals, and fellow amputees at events staged along the yard safety trail.  In addition, I welcome the opportunity to work with various individuals, corporations, and non-profit groups to help with the planning and delivery of this expeditious journey.  Furthermore, I recognize the importance to educate people of all ages.  I view schools, youth groups, civic clubs, and senior centers as a natural forum to communicate the yard safety message.  In particular, I recognize that children and teenagers should learn more about yard safety before they come of age to cut the grass.  Also, I welcome the green industry and equipment industry and related products community to get involved.

Also, I need mass media to reach as many people as possible to communicate the yard safety message.  Therefore, I would like to make a Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) film documentary about this unique expedition to share with the public (smile, say cheese)!  Heck, it is time for the yard safety reality television show - adventures of a yard safety crew and its campaign rolling across America - Letterman to Leno - with a sequel extending beyond into the global community.  I envision a comedy mixed with the serious message of yard safety, including some neat and interesting cameo appearances.  Therefore, I strive to promote yard safety and rescue millions of people from an often times serious injury.  Think Big.  Dream BIGGER.
