Irwin and Penn Township police are participating in Project ChildSafe, a national program to provide free firearm safety kits to residents.

Kits may be picked up in the lobby of Penn Township police headquarters at 2000 Commercial Court, off Sandy Hill Road. Included are a gunlock designed to fit most types of handguns, shotguns and rifles, plus a safety curriculum residents may follow.

Irwin police have been involved in the project and have kits available at Chief John Karasek's office on the second floor of the borough building at Western Avenue. Police also plan to distribute kits during downtown community events.

Scheduling and other information is available by contacting officers Augustine Deguffroy or Art Steffey at 724-863- 1119.
