Safer Homes at the Washington Arms Collectors Show


Event Details

This event finished on 18 November 2018


Safer Homes, Suicide Aware is making an appearance at the state’s largest and longest-running gun show, run by Washington Arms Collectors. This outreach is historic, as half of all suicides are carried out by firearm. Gun shows, a gathering space for many in the firearms community, are the ideal place to have a life-saving conversation about suicide prevention.  Locking devices for both firearms and medications will be provided to attendees at no cost by Safer Homes.

Sat. 9am – 5pm

Sun. 9am – 3pm

Free to WAC members, $12.00 for adult non-members, $8.00 for military personnel with valid military I.D. Get tickets here.

Medication locking devices as well as firearm locking devices will be distributed for free.

“Safer Homes” signifies a home in which lethal means are unavailable to a suicidal individual. “Suicide Aware” signifies the universal need to educate people about suicide prevention and action steps everyone can take today.

Putting a practical barrier between a suicidal person and the means they plan to use to end their life can interrupt their path to suicide.
