New Year’s Resolutions: Personal Safety for Yourself and Family!

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 2 January, 2008

Happy New Year! If you haven’t made your New Year’s Resolutions yet, It is about time to start, even though many will soon end up becoming forgotten. As well as the ever popular traditional resolutions of getting a better job, getting into shape or giving up smoking, drinking or some other bad habit, a vow to become equipped to sufficiently defend yourself or your family should rank high on your list.

Are you highly confident that you could effectively protect yourself, your spouse, your child or any loved one from a robber, carjacker, rapist, intruder, kidnapper, terrorist or anyone else with malicious intent? The statistics are quite alarming:

One violent crime occurring every 22.2 seconds, a property crime every 3.2 seconds, a larceny-theft every 4.8 seconds, a burglary every 14.4 seconds, a motor-vehicle theft every 26.4 seconds, an aggravated assault every 36.6 seconds, a robbery every 1.2 minute, a forcible rape every 5.7 minutes, and a murder every 30.9 minutes. (2006 FBI Crime Clock Stats)

Self defense products and personal safety equipment are an unfortunate necessity in today’s society. In many cases, a simple and effective deterrence mechanism may be the difference between becoming a victim or preventing a crime before it has a chance to start. Whether a stream of pepper spray into the face of a would be attacker, a zap with a stun gun into the attacker’s side, or a loud audible alarm drawing unwanted attention to the attacker, scaring him away or bring additional aid – you can NOT afford to be unprepared.

Preparation is the name of the game. You would not take a test without studying, build a house without plans, or travel on a vacation without packing your suitcase. Why would you not take simple steps on preparing a plan of personal self defense? This is one resolution that is simple to keep and could quite easily become a matter of life and death.

There are various types and sizes of pepper sprays, stun guns and personal alarms, granting a perfect fit for any individual need and preference. They even make a perfect gift for anyone you are concerned with their safety. Help someone else keep one of the most important resolutions they could make.

Don’t forget to properly safeguard your home or business also. There are home alarms, hidden cameras, nanny cams, spy and surveillance equipment perfect for any situation or application.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Have a great New Year, stay safe and be prepared!
