Secure firearm storage is one of the topics covered in a new public service video on suicide prevention.

The Suicide Prevention Collaborative of El Paso County (the Collaborative), a project of Community Health Partnership (CHP), has developed and released a video featuring local city, county and military leaders educating firearm owners and the public about the impact safe storage of firearms can have on reducing the number of deaths by suicide.

The video features El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder, Fountain Director of Public Safety Chris Heberer, Lt. Col. Chris Jackson of the U.S. Air Force, Colorado Springs Police Chief Vincent Niski and Colorado Springs Fire Chief Randy Royal.
