Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center’s (HIPRC) - Firearm Injury & Policy Research Program (FIPRP) has created a new interactive toolkit on firearm injury and suicide prevention strategies.

The interactive toolkit details three interventions available to protect yourself and loved ones from firearm injury or suicide: 1) Firearm Safe Storage; 2) Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs);  3) Voluntary Waiver of Firearm Rights (Voluntary Do-Not-Sell) lets people voluntarily and confidentially restrict immediate access to firearm purchase. 

The toolkit contains downloadable videos and information flyers, social media graphics, and links to additional resources. Please share this link with others in your network:

The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) upheld the Affordable Care Act (ACA) - impacting over 860,000 Washingtonians that receive health care coverage through the ACA. WA residents will continue to benefit from the consumer protections that have been incorporated into both federal and state law which includes protections from annual and lifetime caps, excessive waiting periods, pre-existing condition exclusions, and discrimination based on gender, race, national origin or disability.

The American Rescue Plan Act expanded the ACA allowing Washingtonians to save on the cost of their individual health insurance and makes it easier to get and stay covered. WA residents can sign up or switching plans by August 15, 2021. Enrollment is offered year-round to individuals and families through WA Apple Health (Medicaid).
Free help from local experts is accessible by visiting WA Healthplanfinder.
