Ouch!  My raking back!

 Raking leaves

Nationwide there will be thousands of  people that will end up in the emergency room over the next 4  weeks with injuries from raking leaves  or shoveling snow.

 When you are out cleaning up your yard this fall here are some tips to keep in mind:


  • Wear gloves to prevent blisters.
  • Never leave the rake near a pile of leaves.
  • When cleaning out gutters, always have someone at the bottom of the ladder.
  • When raking leaves remember to twist using your legs instead of your back.
  •  Bend at the knees when lifting bags of leaves or heavy objects.
