Protection & Safety Tips for College Girls

Take a self defense class

Most colleges offer some type of self defense classes, especially for women. If your school does not offer such classes, get in touch with the student government or campus activities and ask why they do not provide it. These classes are typically free, and sometimes can be taken for college credit. These classes are usually the best way to understand how to defend yourself, and can be empowering to know you can do so if you had to.

College girls should have protection

Some colleges and universities are in “the bad part” of town, and college girls need to look out for more than just college guys. All college girls should have some type of protection on them at all times. Good examples of protection include pepper spray (or mace), or a tazer. Both of these are non-lethal ways to take down a potential attacker and get away. College girls should practice using pepper spray or tazers (stun guns) as instructed on the instructions.

College girls should avoid dangerous situations

Avoiding dangerous situations is the easiest way to stay safe. Always traveling with friends always helps, but also being aware of your surroundings is key. If you feel you are being followed try to get to a safe location as quick as possible. If you are alone don’t stop to talk to a stranger if you don’t feel comfortable. Try to walk and stay in highly lit areas at night, and always stay within view of other people. Avoid shortcuts through alley’s because it could be a prime place to get attacked.

What college girls should do in dangerous situations

If a college girl still ends up in a dangerous situation it is important to know what to do. If you are confronted always have a plan to get out safe. Get on your cell phone with someone you trust and tell them where you are and what is happening, if necessary tell them to call the police. If you can’t get a hold of someone, and you do not feel safe, dial 9 and 1, and keep your finger on the one button – If something happens hit the one and yell out where you are and what is happening. If someone tries to steal your car, throw the keys far away from the car and run the opposite direction, this will help save you from being kidnapped. If someone attacks you, don’t yell help, yell fire! In any situation where someone asks for your wallet or purse, throw it over them and run away as fast as possible. If you are attacked and you have pepper spray or a tazer, use it!

The skinny on the WRIST SAVER

The Wrist Saver is a great way to give yourself that added self protection while doing your favorite activities such as:wrist saver, jogging, pepper spray, self defense, walking, running
–          Running
–          Jogging
–          Hiking
–          Inline Skating / Rollerblading
–          Walking
–          Walking your dog
–          Crossing college campus

The Wrist Saver pepper spray product was designed to be very compact, light weight and comfortable.  It was originally designed when owners Derek Downing and Chad Smith inline skated professionally and needed some added protection out on the open roads training from crazy motorists and stray dogs that nipped at their skates.  

Back in the early days the Wrist Saver was a simple elastic band with a loop to hold the bottle of pepper spray.  The Wrist Saver today has now evolved into a much more useful piece of personal safety equipment.  Besides the original idea of having a wrist band that holds a small bottle of pepper spray, it now features:
–          ½ oz. Bottle of OC pepper spray.
–          Highly reflective edging, that’s around the entire band.
–          LED Light, so that car oncoming cars and cars pulling out of parking lots can see you.
–          Personal Emergency ID card that can hold all your vital emergency information in case the unthinkable happens.
–          A very comfortable and light weight neoprene wrist band with Velcro hook and loop ends to adjust it to your own wrist size.

The Wrist Saver has become a complete safety product for the active person.  You could say it’s the Swiss Army knife of workout safety.

Wearing the Wrist Saver is a great way for the average person to be able to defend themselves against any attacker.  Personal defense classes are fine but let’s face it, not all of us are Chuck Norris.  The pepper spray bottle can be removed fast and easy, so you can spray the attacker quick and effortlessly.  You can be up to 8-10 feet away, so no need to whip out your fighting skills.  Once the attacker is sprayed, he’ll be stained by the pepper spray dye and be incapacitated for up to 45 minutes.  This will give you plenty of time to get away to safe and secure location.

There’s no need to be afraid of:wrist saver, jogging, pepper spray, self defense, walking, running
–          Working Out By Yourself
–          Park & Trail Muggings
–          Aggressive Dogs
–          Unruly Motorists
–          Bad Neighborhoods
–          Going Out At Night
–          Walking To Your Car
–          Working Out By Yourself

We’ve worked really hard to keep the price very affordable for everyone out there.  For the cost of a few gallons of gas, you can purchase a Wrist Saver that could save your life.  You can always purchase a Wrist Saver from our online store by clicking HERE.

Why Pepper Spray?

Posted on April 16th, 2011

Share this posting, you could help save a life, some day.

What is OC Pepper Spray All About? OC is oleoresin capsicum, which is extracted from chili peppers and is commonly called Pepper Spray. This product is the most widely sold today and the spray of choice for police since 1977. OC pepper spray is generally regarded to be the most distressing to experience, but it must be sprayed directly in the eyes or inhaled to be effective. The product is an oily liquid not very soluble in water.

Pepper spray is often overlooked as a personal protection product. Not sure why. More people often think of a gun when pepper spray should actually be the first line of defense, in most situations.Pepper Spray works very well against attacking animals with sensitive noses especially dogs, and bears and cougars.  Many members of the U.S. Postal Service or law enforcement agencies has all of its mail carriers or patrol officers carry pepper spray, Why? The do it because Pepper Spray really works.

Pepper Spray has modest beginnings that are steeped in history. Anyone who has served in the military has fond remembrances of their encounter with tear gas or pepper spray as part of their basic training in the gas chamber. Police Academies today all over the country and probably in the world have their trainee’s experience what pepper spray is like.

Throughout the ages, the Chinese have been using pepper and spices to throw at their enemies for literally thousands of years. In 1864.  Germans used tear gas for the first time. Chemical agents have been around for nearly a century. If you have ever had black or red pepper get into your eyes, you know what a very unpleasant experience it is.

The non lethal personal protection products that are available to the public for their use such as steel batons, stun guns, TASERS, pepper sprays, etc. all gets plenty of free publicity mostly because they are effective in saving lives and are so effective. Pepper sprays are a favorite of women for self-defense because they are inexpensive, readily available, small and easy to carry.

Pepper Spray is legal in all 50 states, however a number of cities and states have restrictions on sizes, strengths, etc.. If you have a question, it is wise to check with your local city police.  Pepper spray can be considered a weapon. It is strongly recommended that some training or lots of practice take place before use.

Why does pepper spray stop an attacker? When pepper spray is sprayed into someone’s eyes and face, it irritates the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract (throat). Coughing and choking may be experienced. It is very uncomfortable and there is some pain associated with it. The result is temporary incapacitation, mostly due to not being able to see. It has people too preoccupied with the blinding and painful experience to even attempt to do anything violent to you.

Like all personal protection products the purpose of pepper spray is to give you time to escape or get help not injure or maim. The effects of pepper spray can last as long as 30-45 minutes giving you more than enough time to get away with no lasting damage on your attacker.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, non lethal and effective tool in the fight against crime and a tool for your own personal protection, purchase a Personal Savers product today.

ALARMING STATS

In 2010 there were 250,000 women sexually assaulted and 1 out of 6 women are sexually assaulted in their life time. 

 According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, which includes crimes that were not reported to the police, 232,960 women in the U.S. were raped or sexually assaulted in 2006. That’s more than 600 women every day.6 Other estimates, such as those generated by the FBI, are much lower because they rely on data from law enforcement agencies. A significant number of crimes are never even reported for reasons that include the victim’s feeling that nothing can/will be done and the personal nature of the incident.

The U.S. Department of Justice recently reported that one in four college women will be victims of sexual assault by the time she graduates, though officials say that statistic might be higher.

Why PepperSpray Protection: Reasons Why
Woman Should Carry Pepper Spray

By:Bill Valentine, PhD, Self Defense Coach
There are many reasons women should carry pepper spray. Your personal safety is the most important thing. Today you need to think about educating yourself about personal safety, learning moves that might help save your life, become aware, escaping, fighting back, and other things that can help you.

The most important thing you should think about is your personal safety. You should educate yourself about self defense and learn a few basic self defense moves too. Self defense is extremely important and it can cost you your life if you don’t know a few basic tips to help you. It is best to learn a few different physical self-defense moves that you can use in any circumstance that you might feel threatened, or if someone makes you feel unsafe or violates your space.

The most important thing is awareness. Many women are not aware of their surroundings at times and this is what costs them their life. It is important to be aware of what is going on around you at all times. When you pull into a parking lot to park the car you should look around for people in front and behind you. Before you choose a spot to park you should look around and see if you see anyone. When you are done shopping and walking back to your car you should be sure you don’t see anyone lurking near your vehicle or following you in the parking lot. If you do, act as if you forgot something and walk back to the store. Always be aware of your surroundings and if there are people around you that make you feel uncomfortable you need to do something about it.

The most important thing when you think about personal safety is your 6th sense. Many women often have a bad feeling about something initially and they continue to move forward with what they are doing. If you have a bad feeling about a person or a situation it is important to trust that feeling. Any time that you feel unsafe in a situation you need to remedy your feeling. Your intuition is usually right and if you feel unsafe, even for just a second, you probably are.
An important thing to consider about self defense is that it can take a long time to learn it. Some women consider taking karate classes but this is actually a long-term commitment to really learn the moves. The problem with these classes is that women who take them find that when they are really in an actual dangerous and unsafe situation they do not perform the complicated moves they learned. The time is wasted on the classes and they really don’t work. Danger happens fast and you have to be able to react quickly. What you learn in a class doesn’t kick in fast enough to actually use until it is beyond the point where you could have used it. The next best thing you can do is carry pepper spray on your key ring for your personal protection. This makes it perfect because it is already in your hand and only takes less than two seconds to be able to spray someone with it. There is no thinking involved.

Escaping is important. You don’t want a stranger to take you into a dark alley or shove you into the trunk of a car. You may never make it home to your family again. If you are in a public place and a stranger tells you to come with them or they will kill you it is important to yell and fight back now. This will be your only chance. The person most likely won’t kill you in public but when they get you wherever it is they want to take you they probably will. Pepper spray is the best way to distract a predator from hurting you in public. You can spray them in the face. Pepper spray is very distressing to experience which makes it a great self defense weapon. OC will induce coughing, choking and nausea, as well as dilating the eye capillaries resulting in temporary blindness. The mucous membranes will swell to prevent all but life support breathing causing the assailant to be temporarily incapacitated. You will gain precious time to get away safely.

Fighting back is also something you need to consider. You must fight back any time someone touches you and they shouldn’t. Shout as loud as you can and make a scene. Break a window and make a scene, if possible. Never let someone try to take you by gun or knife point without a fight. The more of a scene you cause will cause them to actually run away because they don’t want to go to jail.

Pepper spray is one of the most important things you can have on you at all times as a woman in the world today. It is a sad truth that you cannot trust your environment anymore. You must be aware of your surroundings at all times. Never let anyone touch you or invade your space and if you feel threatened you can spray them with your pepper spray and use it as a chance to get away. Why Pepper Spray protection for women? This is the best defense mechanism you can have.

About Personal Savers


The idea for Personal Savers was born in 1995 by Derek Downing and Chad Smith, two national and world champion professional inline speed skaters. While training on the open roads in Georgia, they always came across unruly drivers and stray dogs nipping at their feet. Derek's father David Downing owned an in house pepper spray business that sold to police forces worldwide which helped spark the idea of the original Wrist Saver.

The original Wrist Saver was a crude version of itself today but the concept to keep people safe while being active was born. That idea grew into an actual company, but with the strains of traveling for competitions the business was put on hold...
