Five Ways to Protect Yourself When Necessary

Have you ever thought about how you might defend yourself or your family against a predator? I know it's scary to think this could happen to you. Something no one wants to think about. We go through life in hopes that this never happens to us. But, if you found yourself or your family in a position where you have to defend yourself are you prepared? Sadly enough, women are raped every day and people are mugged every day and night.

These things are unfortunate but they do happen. College kids find themselves in these types of predicaments all the time. It's up to you to protect your family and yourself from a predator to assure every ones safety. Our Law Enforcement can only do so much for us and can't be there while a crime is in progress. There for, we all need to learn how to defend ourselves if needed. There are several defense products out there to help you or a family member to defend yourself if ever needed. I will list 5 ways you and your family can live a safer life in the future.

    For those parents that take your kids to the park or shopping to let them burn off some energy and worry about them coming up missing or getting lost, there is a solution for that. There is a child safety alarm to warn you when your child has wandered off too far. This is a good device to have so if you get busy and take your eyes off them you will know when the child has left your side or safety perimeter.

    When you're out for that morning run or just a walk around the block there are several ways to defend yourself. One way is to have a Whistle or an alarm to alert someone in the area. There are also more aggressive ways to stop an attacker in his tracks. You could use a Stun Gun or Taser to knock them off their feet. These are Non-Lethal weapons that are very affective in getting the job done. They come in various voltage, shapes and sizes. Or maybe you're more comfortable with Mace to blind your assailant. The problem I see with this type of device is you need to spray the person in the face, so you don't want to miss, unlike the Stun Gun where anywhere on the body works.

    Is your Bicycle equipped with the necessary safety equipment, like front and rear lights so that oncoming traffic can see you? How about reflectors and a horn? The last thing you want is to have a bike accident while you're out enjoying yourself for the day or night.

    Do you ever find yourself driving through a less desirable neighborhood and worry what could happen when stopped at a stop sign or light? Anything is possible and when you least expect it. There are ways to prevent the unexpected if it ever happens to you. There are Steel Batons and Steel Batons with a Stun Gun at the end of the device. And let's not forget your car horn which can be most effective in warning people close by that you're in trouble and need help.

    If you are more of the hands on type of person there are Instructional Videos that teach you how to fight off an attacker. I think everyone should be more adverse in hand to hand combat as a last resort. If you can't ward off your attacker with a self defense device, then you may need to know how to take your attacker down to flee the scene and get help.

I hope this has helped you understand that there are various ways to protect yourself if needed. The last thing we want to happen is to find our self in a position where we need to take action, but if it does happen we all need to be able to protect ourselves when the time comes. It's up to us to be prepared to stop an attack whether it is on us or someone else. Then report it to the authorities right away so they are able to get that person off the street before it happens to someone else.
