The Grand County Sheriff’s Office is offering free firearm safety kits to residents through a partnership with a nationwide firearms safety program.

The sheriff’s office teamed up with Project Childsafe to distribute 100 firearm safety kits, which include a gun lock and educational information. The kits can be picked up at the sheriff’s office in Hot Sulphur Springs from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.

“We encourage residents to pick up a Project ChildSafe safety kit so that they can securely store their firearms,” said Sheriff Brett Schroetlin. “The goal is to prevent a child or any other unauthorized person from accessing firearms in your home.”

Project Childsafe promotes firearms safety education to all gun owners across the country.
