What is Family Safety Net (FSN)?

The Family Safety Net aims to help keep children and youth safe by supporting families in storing their firearms safely.

In partnership with Maniilaq Health Center, the Family Safety Net will offer adult family members resources (ammo boxes, gun safes, locks) and reminders to keep their loved ones safe by locking, unloading home firearms and storing ammo somewhere else starting in late 2021. 

Now, we ask for your input to make sure we design the Family Safety Net right.
