A personal alarm also knows as a panic alarm is one of my favorite non lethal self defense weapons you get on the market today. The reasons for this are simple: They are cheap to buy, easy to carry and even easier to use plus they are effctive and we will discuss all of this in more detail in this post.
Is a Panic Alarm inexpensive?
You can find a personal alarm online right now for as little as 10 bucks and usually they don't get more costly than 20 bucks. So yes, for 10-20 dollars you can get one of these devices for yourself so I am sure you can see just how affordable they are even if you get the top of the line model. This also makes these items great stocking stuffers or straight gifts for people you love.
Are Personal Safety Alarms easy to use?
To operate the device you simply press the panic button if it is equipped with one, if not then it will be a pull pin. In other words, you will yank the wrist strap out of the device pulling the safety pin and activating the device. When activated it sounds off, depending on your model, from an average of 110-130 decibels of siren which is extremely loud.
Are Personal Alarms very versatile?
The numerous uses for this device is why I mentioned it was one of my favorites. A Personal Alarm can be used to scare off an attacker. It can be used should you find yourself lost somewhere wanting people to be able to hear and find you like when camping or even should your vehicle run off the road and trap you. It can also be used to ward off some dogs, not all, but some. It is so loud it hurts their ears and they may bark but usually they will stay away.
Another benefit is that a personal alarm is good for the young and old as well as both males and females. This is a little extra insurance you can be heard when you need to be in case of emergency so you should consider adding it to your self defense arsenal.
