The NRA Foundation has awarded the Arizona Rangers: Agua Fria Company a grant totaling $2,800 to fund The Eddie Eagle GunSafe program.
The program is a gun accident prevention program for children in pre-kindergarten through fourth grade.
The main teaching tool for the program is a video, featuring Eddie Eagle and the Wing Team.
Eddie and his friends teach children that if they ever come across a gun in an unsupervised situation, they need to “STOP! Don’t touch. Run away. Tell a grown-up.”
“We are very excited about The Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program, and pleased that the NRA is making an investment in our community,” said Lt. Robert Shirey, executive officer.
The Arizona Rangers, on request, provide law enforcement support and assistance to any federal, state or local law enforcement agency within Arizona. Also, on request, the Arizona Rangers can provide security services for community and civic organizations.
The Arizona Rangers provide support for the youth and youth organizations within Arizona. Additionally, the Arizona Rangers participate in activities which keep alive the history and traditions of the Old West.
