What is The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program?
The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program teaches children in pre-K through third grade four important steps to take if they find a gun. These steps are presented by the program's mascot, Eddie Eagle®, in an easy-to-remember format consisting of the following simple rules:
If you see a gun: STOP! Don't Touch. Leave the Area. Tell an Adult.
Regardless of whether or not guns are in a home, most children are curious about guns. That curiosity is equally strong or stronger among children who grow up in homes without guns as it is in those who grow up in gun-owning households. While parents are ultimately responsible for the care, safety and development of their children, all children need to be taught gun accident prevention to be prepared if they encounter a firearm. Where there is no adult supervision, children must know what to do.
Hilliard Division of Police officers present this program. The National Rifle Association provides the material and lesson plans for our community.
