The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program is coming to Montgomery tomorrow (Saturday). The NRA sponsored youth safety program is for ages pre-k through 4th grade, and will be held tomorrow at the old Montgomery Community Center from 2 – 5 p.m. (See schedule below)
This FREE event will be held with the help of the Montgomery Police Department and the Montgomery Junior Shooters youth shooting club. Through coloring books, games, songs, and videos, and actual furry mascot, Eddie Eagle himself, this fun, interactive program will teach and remind children how to be safe if they see a firearm.
“The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program is a gun accident prevention program developed by a task force made up of educators, school administrators, curriculum specialists, urban housing safety officials, clinical psychologists, law enforcement officials and National Rifle Association firearm safety experts. It began in 1988 with one mission: teach children four simple, easy to remember steps so they know what to do if they ever come across a gun… Eddie and his friends remind children that if they see a gun, they need to Stop! Don’t touch. Run away. Tell a grown-up.”
