The University of Michigan has published a web-based toolkit designed to support the use and implementation of Michigan’s new extreme risk protection order, or ERPO, law.

Also known as a red flag law, Michigan’s ERPO law went into effect in February with the goal of intervening when someone is at risk of using a firearm to harm themselves or others.

The free digital toolkit, developed by the U-M Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention, provides guidance on Michigan’s ERPO policies and protocols, how and when to file an ERPO, and information for families, health care providers and networks, schools and law enforcement and government agencies. The toolkit also provides crisis assistance resources.
