DOES YOUR CHILD KNOW WHAT TO DO
IF HE OR SHE FINDS A GUN?
The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program is a gun accident prevention program that seeks to help parents, law enforcement, community groups and educators navigate a topic paramount to our children’s safety. Eddie and his Wing Team are on a mission to help you teach Pre-K through 4th graders what to do if they ever come across a gun…
This first step is crucial. Stopping first allows your child the time he or she needs to remember the rest of the safety instructions.
A firearm that is not touched or disturbed is unlikely to be fired and otherwise endanger your child or other people.
This removes the temptation to touch the firearm as well as the danger that another person may negligently cause it to fire.
Tell A Grown-up
Children should seek a trustworthy adult, neighbor, relative or teacher – if a parent or guardian is not available.
The purpose of the Eddie Eagle Program isn’t to teach whether guns are good or bad, but rather to promote the protection and safety of children. The program makes no value judgments about firearms, and no firearms are ever used in the program.
A video and student activity book will help to navigate conversations during the class about gun safety. With these materials and the Eddie Eagle video, this is sure to be a memorable and worthwhile class.
ADVICE FOR NON-GUN OWNERS: Even though you don’t own a gun, you may know someone who might. And it’s imperative that you prepare your children so they know what to do if they ever find a gun.
Each child receives an Activity Book and certificate of completion.
