Personal Safety Products from Sabre
As college students are heading back to campus, many overlook the importance of personal safety gadgets in their essential packing list. Having a personal safety product empowers students to feel safe from potential threatening and uncomfortable situations.
Products are available at Amazon and tips are below from Personal Safety Expert David Nance, founder of SABRE’s College Safety Program.
For late night walks home from the library or a night out, students can carry a small, accessible, easy to use tool such as the Rose Gold Personal Safety Alarm with LED Light and Snap Hook or a SABRE Pepper Gel with Keyring Release Whistle.
The UV marking dye in the pepper gel helps the authorities identify anyone after they’ve been sprayed.
For fashionable on-the-go safety, consider the SABRE Jeweled Pepper Spray or the lipstick-sized Mighty Discreet Pepper Spraywith a twist top safety that helps prevent accidental discharge and a snap clip for immediate accessibility.
These new affordable products were designed with student safety in mind by Nance. David also provides the top campus safety tips to empower students as they navigate college life.
