FAIRFAX, Va. --(Ammoland.com)- National Rifle Association General Operations has established the Community Outreach Department within its Education and Training Division to focus on safety throughout the nation with its Eddie Eagle GunSafe and Refuse To Be A Victim programs.

“The new Community Outreach Department will work with law enforcement, educators, and civic groups to keep young children safe from firearm accidents and ensure the average citizen knows the fundamentals to avoid being a victim of crime,” said Community Outreach Department National Manager Eric Lipp.

“Together, Eddie Eagle GunSafe and Refuse To Be A Victim will build on their successful pasts to make the public safer and the future brighter.”

Created in 1988 by past NRA President Marion P. Hammer, with assistance from child psychologists, teachers, curriculum specialists and law enforcement personnel, Eddie Eagle GunSafe teaches children to “Stop! Don’t Touch. Leave the Area. Tell an Adult,” if they find a firearm.

More than 26 million pre-K through the third grade students have learned Eddie Eagle’s lifesaving lesson. The NRA believes Eddie Eagle and similar programs have contributed to the 80% decline in fatal firearms accidents among children, according the National Center for Health Statistics, since its launch.

Refuse To Be A Victim is a crime prevention and personal safety program that has reached over 100,000 people since its inception in 1993. Classes present a variety of common sense strategies that promote awareness and avoidance of dangerous situations that easily integrate into daily life. The program has been implemented across the United States with help from hundreds of law enforcement officers at the federal, state, and local levels.
