The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) announced today that the International Hunter Education Association (IHEA-USA), the world leader in developing safe and responsible hunters since 1949, has become a promotional supporter of NSSF’s Project ChildSafe program.
“Respect for firearms is an integral part of responsible hunting,” said Steve Hall, Executive Director of IHEA-USA. “Safe hunting begins with hunter education, and firearm safety is foundational to that education. We’re joining forces with NSSF and Project ChildSafe to emphasize the importance of responsible firearm use and storage in the field or in the home with hunters and their families.”
Through its partnership with Project ChildSafe, IHEA-USA will help spread the message of “Own It? Respect It. Secure It.” and “Store Your Firearms Responsibly” by working with its statewide directors and hunter education instructors through its newsletter, website and social media platforms.
“IHEA-USA is a vital organization helping to promote safe enjoyment of hunting and the shooting sports, and we are extremely pleased to have them involved in echoing the Project ChildSafe messages of personal responsibility and firearm safety,” said Steve Sanetti, President and CEO of NSSF. “Proper storage is the number one way to help prevent firearm accidents, and we’re proud to have IHEA-USA’s help in sharing important firearm safety reminders with hunter education instructors and hunters.”
