Gun Safety for kids, with eddie eagle
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… Mainly for children who are generally considered too young to be allowed to handle firearms, or don't have firearms in the home. While maturity levels vary, the Eddie Eagle program is intended for children of any age! This is a program I offer 100% for free! It takes about an hour, depending on number, and age of children participating. I have a activity book, some gifts for the kids, a short video, and Q&A. For anyone who wants, I can also bring about 10 firearms, ranging from toys, to a couple of the real thing. I feel that allowing a child to get to know the difference between real, and fake is a big part of safety around firearms. Education is always better than ignorance! Each of the real firearms will be completely locked, and there will be zero live ammunition brought to this class. 100% safe environment! Please contact me with any questions about the program, willing to teach one kid, or a group!
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.
