Maury County Fire Department released the following information on Sunday:

"Today units responded to Grace Drive where volunteers from out of state were working with heavy equipment and saws to clear downed trees from the tornado. A large branch struck a worker requiring an air medical response.

MCFD is asking the public to please wear personal protective equipment while operating saws and heavy equipment.

Arborist helmets or a combination of hard hats and eye protection along with chainsaw chaps, etc are encouraged for those operating chainsaws to reduce the chance of serious injuries.

Trees downed from the tornado are intertwined with others and can store a great deal of energy when branches are cut away and that energy is released. Take your time and look at potential movement of limbs when cut.

Stay safe!
