Eddie Eagle Gun Safety

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:
Don't Touch.
Leave the Area.
Tell an Adult.

During the program: a 7-minute animated video is shown and student workbooks, brochures and reward stickers are distributed.  Children will also have a chance to meet Eddie Eagle and take photographs with him.    Program materials are also available in Spanish.
