For The Kids

NPSI offers opportunities for parents to have their kids safely learn and train in a safe environment.

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.

Begun in 1988, The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program has reached more than 21 million children - in all 50 states. The program may be readily incorporated into existing school curriculum, taught in a one- to five-day format, and used to reach both levels or simply one or two grades. Materials available through this program are: student workbooks, 7-minute animated DVD, brochures, and student reward stickers. Program materials are also available in Spanish.

We are committed to helping keep our children safe.

The purpose of the Eddie Eagle Program isn't to teach whether guns are good or bad, but to promote the protection and safety of children. The program makes no value judgments about firearms, and no firearms are ever used in the program. Like swimming pools, electrical outlets, matchbooks and household poison, they are treated simply as a fact of everyday life. With firearms found in most American households, it's a program that makes sense.

OWN IT? RESPECT IT. SECURE IT.®
