There are easy ways to look out for yourself. Keep your safety whistle with you at all times. Ultimately, everyone is responsible for his or her own personal safety. Blowing a sharp blast from a quality whistle can startle an attacker. Calling attention to yourself and a potential threat can be a quick route to safety. We have heard many testimonials over the years from individuals who feel that blowing a whistle frightened their attacker and offered them a quick escape. Placing a whistle on your key ring is one great way to remind yourself to be always vigilant about your surroundings. Pay attention when you enter or leave your home, in public parking garages and open areas. Avoid isolated areas, especially at night. Look out for yourself and those around you. Lives may depend on it.
