SHEPPARD AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
- Proper clothing is essential to protect your body. Always wear close-fitting pants, earplugs, protective eyewear and sturdy footwear (i.e., not sandals).
- Every time before you mow, check your lawn for items such as toys, sports equipment, dog bones, wire, equipment parts, rocks, sticks (and snakes!).
- Wait for the blades to stop completely before removing the grass catcher, unclogging the discharge chute, cleaning underneath the mower, or crossing gravel paths, roads (or feet!).
