Did you know that Federal officials estimate that there are over 200 million firearms in the United States? Studies suggest that guns are kept in approximately half of all U.S. households.
What should a child do if they see a gun? STOP! Don't Touch. Leave the Area. Tell an Adult.
The Children's Services department at the downtown library will offer the Eddie Eagle Gun Safety Program tomorrow and Saturday, November 19 and 20, at 2:00 pm. This program is designed for children in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 3 and their parents.
The Eddie Eagle Program has no agenda other than accident prevention -- ensuring that children stay safe should they encounter a gun. We hope you'll join us for this important safety program.
