How to use a personal safety alarm
Personal safety alarms are small, easy to carry portable devices. When triggered, they emit a loud, piercing sound. The frequencies these generate can be painful to the human ear (up to 130db). When activated in the event of an attack, they can be a powerful deterrent in a number of ways.
For instance, the shrill sound of the alarm may be enough to send the attacker running just to get away from it. It can also attract attention from other people in the area, which can cause the criminal to think twice about attempting anything. Finally, because most of these alarms can be heard from hundreds of feet away, they may be useful in summoning help.
Bella personal alarms are highly portable - they are the size of a key fob used to unlock car doors, making them easy to attach to a purse, key ring purse, or backpack. They're great options for safety on-the-go, for children, the elderly and even travel and flights!
It is easy to activate a Bella personal alarm; simply pull the ring to release the pin from the device, emitting a piercing 130 db siren.
Here is a step by step guide on how to use your Bella personal safety alarm:
- Keep your alarm in an easily accessible place - attach it to your purse, your backpack, your belt, or keep on your keychain. We recommend keeping your valuable items and your alarm at your front.
- If you feel in danger, pull the bottom part of the device away from the pin - this will set of the 130dB alarm and flashing light
- Grip it firmly and point in the direction of an attacker
- If you are no longer in danger, simply place the pin back into the top of your Bella Alarm
