• Personal alarms are a type of safety equipment which main purpose is to disorientate the person attacking so that it is possible to get away from the danger. How do personal alarms work and how can they help me in case I become a victim of an attempted robbery or attack? Personal alarms emit very loud (over 100dB) sounds which disorientate the attacker and give you valuable seconds to run away and call for help. Personal alarms highly depend on the element of surprise as activating an alarm sound is something not expected. 

• To be sure that the personal alarm is effective, the sound it is emitting should be different than typical sounds you can hear on the streets every day. This is one of the reasons why personal alarms which use pulsating sounds similar to car or home alarms aren’t a great choice as such sounds are very often ignored. The best choice for sound that is delivered through a personal alarm is a continuous siren like sound – it is not common to hear such loud sound in everyday life so it increases the chances of getting attention from by passers or Gardai. You should always remember that using a personal alarm is just one of the steps in case of an attack and the best action you can take when alarm is being activated is to quickly run towards a crowded place and call the Gardai if possible. 

• Although most of personal alarms can be attached to keys or belt you have to bear in mind that when you find yourself in a situation where you are under a lot of stress and need to quickly find and activate the alarm you need to have it easily accessible. A good practice is to keep your personal alarm together with your wallet, be it in a pocket or purse. A lot of attackers simply want your wallet and when they tell you to hand it to them this is when you get a chance to grab your personal alarm and use it against the attacker. A personal alarm that gets lost somewhere in the depths of a purse or a backpack isn’t any good. 

• It is worth knowing that the closer a personal alarm to attacker’s ear the more efficient is the effect. This is one of the reasons why you should be able to use the personal alarm while holding it within your hand so you can direct it toward attacker’s head if possible.
