“We teach our kids how to swim because we don’t want them to drown. This is the same concept behind our program — safety for every kid, not just the kids with firearms in their homes. We must empower our youth through proper education to make good, safe decisions if they are ever put in an unsafe position…you might be responsible with your firearms, but we don’t know about other parents. Kids can come in contact with a firearm in the most unusual places, so this lifesaving education is critical.”

**The programs and resources listed below are a part of an ongoing process of analysis. Take them as initial recommendations for your education.

These are the organizations that we are researching and considering.**




The Safe and Secure Project

“The cure for curiosity is normality. Introduction to firearms is an easy way to familiarize your child with firearms. If your child understands your firearms, and they are not kept away like a dark secret, there will be less of a risk that they will want to play with them if found. Through your teachings and our classes they will know what to do if they come across one. We would like to take the curiosity of firearms away from children.”

Kids S.A.F.E Foundation

“Since 2015 the Kids S.A.F.E. Foundation has been a leader in the state of Oregon and the nation in regards to children’s firearm safety. We have reached 22,000 kids in Oregon, Washington, Northern California, and Arizona. We have taught them life-saving skills on what to do if they ever encounter a firearm. STOP, DON’T TOUCH, RUN AWAY, TELL AN ADULT!! We teach our kids to swim because we don’t want them to drown. We use this similar approach when it comes to firearm safety. Our firearm safety program is for all kids, not just the kids with firearms in their homes. Children can come in contact almost anywhere, their education is vital. ZERO firearm accidents are the only acceptable goal!!®”
