Session 1: Introduction to Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs)
Tuesday, July 16 , 2024
12:00 – 1:00 PM EST  
 

Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs), also known as red flag orders, are civil court orders designed to prevent firearm injury and death by temporarily restricting access to firearms for those who are at risk of harming themselves or others. 21 states, including Michigan, have an ERPO law in place, and when implemented well, ERPOs have shown to be a life-saving measure. In this webinar, learn more about what Extreme Risk Protection Orders are, what the evidence base is for the effectiveness of ERPOs in preventing injury and death, and what clinicians need to know about ERPOs.
