Pink Personal Alarm for Personal Security

The Screecher Personal Alarm use Gas to make noise

How does a personal alarms work? And exactly What do they do? A personal alarm is a device designed for self defense, if it is activated, a very loud sound is emitted. The sound it emits is not only loud but also high pitched and very ear piercing.

Is Every Personal Panic Alarm The Same?

Not at all, generally personal safety alarms are battery operated and electronic. Some have strobe lights or flashlights, some also function as a travel alarm that can be used to protect your motor-home or hotel room door. When a button is pushed or a pin removed the device is activated and will remain activated until the pin is back in place. There are also some that are small canisters, they are pressurized with a gas that is inert. If the button is depressed, the gas then escapes through a nozzle which produces a shrieking blast. This type of personal attack alarm will remain on as long as the button is in fact depressed and the canister still contains pressurized gas.

Are Personal Alarms Beneficial?

Let's say that a potential assailant is in search of an “easy target” that will be easily submitted to their approach. If they are confronted with the sonic blast a personal alarm emits, they will quickly become startled and disoriented.

Being able to combine both of these options makes for a strong self defense.
