Personal Attack Alarms

60 Second Security Safety Ideas

Whilst many people report that their attacker came from nowhere, is that really the case? If you are vigilant and aware of your surroundings then you're in a much better position to spot a possible threat before it escalates. Stay switched on. Great Manchester Police in the UK have compiled some simple safety tips to help you be alert to possible threats to your personal safety. It only takes 60s to watch their video guide but hopefully you will never need to use your personal alarm if you stay switched on.

Here's what they have produced as part of their series of ‘60 Second Security’ videos on simple personal safety security advice. They provide easy step-by-step tips, including advice on products and how to install and use them, helping to make you and your property that little bit safer.

Personal Attack Alarms

How and why personal devices work?

Carrying a personal alarm is a convenient way to immediately improve your personal safety and you’ll feel a whole lot safer too. Although these alarms are loud, typically an ear piercing 130dB+ high pitched sound that will attract the attention of nearby public or Police, what if no-one is in earshot?

Contrary to what you might think, personal safety devices are designed to scare off the attacker before an attack or disorientate your attacker so you can use precious seconds to react and get away. Whilst intervention from the public or Police would be ideal it’s probably in most cases not the reality of where an attack is likely to take place i.e. in public.
