Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
Just in time for back to campus, Minneapolis-based Vigilant Personal Protection Systems is introducing a complete line of personal protection alarms. Designed to be carried with you where ever you go, Vigilant’s personal protection alarms feature ear piercing 130dB alarms aimed at diffusing dangerous situations. The full line of alarms will be available for domestic shipment to retail beginning in mid July, 2011.
Personal alarms are one of the fastest growing segments at retail in the self defense industry, because an attacker’s worst enemy is attention. Personal alarms are legal to carry in all 50 states (even on airplanes!) and are a very safe and effective method of self defense. They require no training or skill to operate, and can be used by anyone regardless of age or physical ability. Police Officers, Campus Safety and Security Consultants recommend the use of personal safety alarms. Victims are often too traumatized to shout for help in unfamiliar and dangerous situations, increasing their vulnerability. The high pitched alarm is intended to scare off an assailant while switching the element of surprise from the attacker to the victim. Criminals do not like to draw attention, and will likely run off when they realize the alarm cannot be stopped.
The flagship model is called The Wrist Alarm™, an exclusive design. The Wrist Alarm™ is worn on the wrist and is easily concealed. It was designed for one-touch activation with hands free operation providing personal safety protection without hindering any activity. Many people enjoy sports like hiking, running, or cycling, but these activities can leave you isolated and vulnerable. If you feel threatened or need emergency assistance, simply activate The Wrist Alarm. The “one-size-fits-all” wrist band, and assortment of colors available make The Wrist Alarm™ a practical and critical daily companion.
Other models include the PPS8, a personal alarm that uses standard AAA batteries for easy replacement. The PPS20 is a keychain alarm that features a 120db alarm and a flashing red light, while the PPS22 keychain alarm includes a white LED light that can be used as a mini flash light in low light situations. Over 10 new models will be available by Fall 2011, with a variety of colors, applications, and price points.
A percentage of the sale from each personal alarm will be donated to national missing children’s funds and non-profit personal safety organizations nationwide.
