On Tuesday, 3/19, the North Adams Police Department and BE SMART Program will be hosting a BE SMART Safe Storage Workshop from 6-7 pm in the North Adams PD Training Room (21 Holden Street). The night will start off with a presentation from BE SMART followed by an open floor for questions answered by the North Adams Police Department. Everyone in attendance will be entered into a raffle to win a safe. Free gun locks will be available. The Be SMART campaign was launched in 2015 to promote responsible gun ownership in order to reduce child gun deaths. Whether you’re a gun owner, or you know someone who owns a gun, there is a role for everyone in the conversation around secure gun storage. Be SMART is a framework that parents, caretakers, and community leaders can follow to help keep their communities safe. Ultimately, you can help prevent kids from accessing firearms by storing them securely, and encouraging others to do the same. Because children deserve to feel safe, no matter where they are. For more information about the BE SMART program: https://besmartforkids.org The event is free and open to all! Please feel free to share and post.
