    Hey guys and gals. With the nature of this business and the equipment we are using, safety should be our #1 concern. An employee who works for our local city grounds crew had a bit of an accident last Friday. Apparently he was using a trimmer with a brushcutter blade and the blade came loose and severed his foot completely off. Very scary stuff. I thought I would share this story for those of you who insist on doing everything in a hurry. I'm going to be safer for sure after hearing about this, especially using those blades. Keep it safe!

    As much as safety is about protecting your outer body, it should be for your inner body as well. I'm only 16 and i have developed slight hearing loss due to mowing and hunting and it can easily be avoided taking the right precautions.
