What’s the one thing you can’t leave home without? Maybe your wallet or your keys or your children. What about your phone? We live in an age of 24/7 contact where absence of technology can literally bring people anxiety. But how often are you prepared to protect yourself when heading outdoors?
There’s probably not a day goes by when we don’t buy something or communicate via phone. Therefore, remembering our credit card and cell becomes second nature. It’s common to relegate personal safety because we aren’t confronted daily by that uneasiness of not being prepared like we are with money or ability to reach people. At the end of the day though, we face potentially greater consequences for not being ready to protect ourselves than for being stranded at the counter with no means of paying, no matter how embarrassing that is.
We need to train ourselves to consistently think about safety. Just like getting fit, safety is all about the routine, but less painful. There will be those days when you think, “I’ll just skip today. One day doesn’t matter.” Anyone who’s failed a diet or workout plan will tell you that’s the start of a slippery slope. When it comes to your safety, that one day could be the day you become the target of an attack. So, we might as well get into the habit earlier than later.
To help kick start the habit, SABRE is introducing a great solution for iPhones users - just in time for the New Year! The new SABRE SmartGuard includes a compact pepper spray baton built into the iPhone hard case. Now your pepper spray goes wherever your iPhone goes, which is probably wherever you are. And the integrated safety tab will help ensure that the spray doesn’t go off in your purse or pocket. And for the extremely cautious, rest assured knowing you have to remove the baton to deploy the spray even when it’s up to your ear. You always have your phone in case of emergency. So, why not have added back-up that’s just as accessible, but more effective in any instance when you are forced to protect yourself immediately?
