Personal Alarms

There are many types of personal alarms on the market and making the right decision can be tricky. The personal alarm's purpose could be to shock, scare and disorientate an attacker which could buy the victim enough time to escape a dangerous situation. 

An alarm could also be given to an elderly relative to give them a way of calling out when having a fall or a situation that they may find difficult to come back from.

Whatever the reason for using a personal alarm it is important to find one that fits the scenario you see yourself faced with. It needs to be easy to use and be loud enough to prevent an incident or draw attention.

 

Features to consider

The sound emitted from the alarm: If you are to purchase a personal attack alarm then you need the decibel to be loud enough to deter attackers. Our alarms go up to 138dB with our more popular device (the SG390) sounding 120dB. 

Your alarm should be easy to carry and easily activated with the industry favourites being activated at the single press of a button. 

 

How to encourage loved ones to wear a personal alarm

A personal alarm can provide a lot of comfort for those with family members who are often in riskier situations. You may have a relative or friend who often walks home at night from work alone or perhaps an older relative who is a little uncomfortable on their feet but still lives at home.

You may wish for them to wear a personal alarm as insurance and you may find that some members of the family will find this insulting and a loss of their independence. 

• Don't patronise them
• Ensure they know you have their best interests at heart
• Stick to facts
• Don't scare or upset them
