Safe Firearm Storage Event

Come join Moses Lake Community Health Center, Samaritan Healthcare, and the Grant County Health District to promote safe firearm storage. Learn about the importance of storing firearms safely in your home and receive hands-on training to use a lock box and trigger lock. Every attendee 18 and over will receive a lock box or trigger lock, while supplies last.

One out of every three homes with children in the U.S. has a firearm. Many of these firearms are kept unlocked or loaded. Children and teens are at the greatest risk of unintentional deaths, injuries and suicides from firearms. Young children are naturally curious. They explore in drawers, cabinets and closets. Some older children and teens are attracted to firearms and see them as signs of power. Each year in Washington State, about 55 children are hospitalized and 38 die from firearm injuries. Most of these shootings occur in or around the home.

Come join us at this free event and receive a FREE lock box or trigger lock (while supplies last).
