Since millions of students and faculty call university campuses home every year, staying safe on campus is a top priority. With many of these students living on their own in an unfamiliar environment for the first time, making sure everyone is prepared for potential criminal activity is crucial.
We recently shared a video containing important tips for staying safe while on campus. Many of these tips, such as following alert systems, knowing the location of emergency phones, and paying close attention to your surroundings are helpful in being less susceptible to crime. But in the unfortunate event that you are put in an unsafe position on campus, having effective safety gear such as a safety whistle can help.
What makes safety whistles great campus safety tools?
Sound is the number one deterrent of criminal activity. When in perilous situations, we can often be paralyzed with fear and are unable to effectively scream for help. By having a 120-decibel safety whistle at the ready, you can ensure that you’re prepared for anything. Even in situations where yelling for help isn’t possible, if you can breathe, you can blow this whistle.
Safety whistles are also one of the safest ways to defend yourself. Other forms of personal defense devices don’t attract attention to the situation where help is needed. Also, whistles can’t be turned against you.
Small and compact, safety whistles can easily be clipped to jackets, backpacks, or keychains for easy access at any time.
