Educating Families on Gun Safety
November 2022 | Cook Children's Aim for Safety® program devised a new way to educate families on gun safety using an interactive kiosk that teaches children what to do if they discover a firearm in a home — all while reinforcing safe-storage techniques for adult gun owners.
The mobile kiosk, which stands more than 7-feet high and resembles a giant smartphone, rolled out in December 2021 at Defender Outdoors, a sports shooting and outdoors equipment retailer in Fort Worth, Texas.
Cook Children's Aim for Safety program maintains a non-political approach, strictly focusing on educating families about ways to keep everyone safe when guns are in a home, Dr. Guzman says. The program emphasizes three steps: Safe Storage. Safe Children. Safe Play.
