  • Today's Show | Jogging Safety | Personal Security Defense Devices

    On the Today's show "Jogging safety: How to protect yourself while running," the conversation was on the murder of Molle Tibbets, an Iowa college student.  Over a period of time, Molle and several other victims went running and never made it back home.

    Frightening stats shared on the interview:

    --30% of women surveyed by Runner's 2016 said that they have been followed by someone in a car, on foot, or by bike while running.

    --58% of women under 30 said they experience harassment while on a run.

    Jenna Bush Hager interviews former Secret Service Agent Evy Poumpouras on the need to stay safe while jogging.

    Here are some takeaways from that interview:

    --Don't be afraid of going on a run, but be proactive. Know your surroundings.  Is it heavily populated?  With help nearby, your chances of being harassed go down.

    --If the run is during the nights, is the place well lit?  You are more prone to being assaulted when it gets dark.  Assailants can easily hide within the shadows.

    --Always tell someone where you're going and how long you'll be gone.  This shares the responsibility with others.

    --Download tracking apps like "Find My Friends" to share location information. Others can help pinpoint your locations while on the trail.

    --If you have earphones on, you should always be looking, scanning your surroundings.  Be aware of who is on your radar and especially who is behind you.

    --If attached, Agent Evy said you need to be quick, and fierce and violent when you strike a person.

    The most important tip Agent Evy emphasized: Situational Awareness.  Be proactive.  Avoid putting yourself in vulnerable places ...planning ahead for each activity in order to minimize the risk.

    The agent recommends that everyone takes a class in self-defense and strongly suggests Pepper Sprays, personal alarms, and keys as self-defensive weapons.

    How helpful are these self-defense Products?

     Effects of Pepper Spray on Humans

    Pepper Shot Self Defense Tri Pack Scoville Units Pepper spray Multi Pack

    Pepper Spray contains an active ingredient called OC (Oleoresin Capsicum) which is derived from the very hot cayenne peppers.

    When this inflammatory agent comes in contact with the human membranes it causes intense pain and swelling.  Breathing becomes difficult.

    The victim becomes immobilized for several minutes thus giving you a chance to safely escape.  There is no lasting damage to the assailant.

    Pepper sprays are easy to carry and fit easily in your pocket or attached to a keychain. They can be disguised as pens, lipsticks, etc..

    Personal Panic Alarm Tactical Devices

    Personal alarms are simple devices you can carry while on the run. They can come disguised as lipsticks or keychains.

    A simple push of a button sets off a loud alarm that would deter any would-be predator.

    Heart Attack Defense Keychain

    The heart attack personal defense tactical Keychain is a simple but lethal device you can use to stop a mugger dead in his tracks.  Wrap your fingers between this piece of hard plastic and deliver a painful jab to bring the bad dude down.

    Women joggers are always at risks while on the trail.  They are often viewed as being vulnerable.  Please don't be another Molly Tibbets. Take all the precautions necessary and certainly be prepared
    for any emergency situation.

  • Emergency Paracord Tactical Bracelet – 5 Amazing Survival Uses

    Emergency Paracord Tactical Bracelet

    The stars of the American reality series: Naked and Afraid, have to survive the hostile wilderness for 21 days with just one helpful item of choice: a hatchet or a fire starter.

    They have to feed, house and clothed themselves using just the resources within their environment.

    A TV crew follows them around and in a life and death emergency situation; help is not too far away.   But for the real survivalists trapped in dire situations, life is not a reality show.

    The real jungles of this world pose many challenges for the lost: mosquitoes hungry enough to suck every drop of blood from your body to prehistoric-sized anacondas eager to hug you in a tight coil.

    Besides these extreme dangers, there is the immediate need for food and water.

    An item to help you survive a treacherous jungle is the ParaTinder Paracord Bracelet with flint fire tinder.

    This simple wrist accessory is an innovative tool for any emergency preparedness.   The bracelet is made from the same durable nylon cord used in military parachutes.   In a crunch, this tool can save your life. Here are 5 amazing survival uses:

    Catching Fish

    The paracord survival bracelet can easily be unraveled.  Take a yard from the main cord; attach one end to a long stick or slender branch
    and the other end to a piece of bait.  Pick a convenient spot and wait for your meal to bite.

    You can have several fishing lines working for you while you concentrate on other lifesaving tasks.

    Trapping Games

    Necessity is the mother of all inventions and there is no excuse to go hungry while trapped in a hostile jungle teeming with wildlife.  There are several ways to fashion a noose from a paracord and lay your snare for small games.

    Another idea:  Find a flexible sapling and create a simple bow using the cord. With a few sturdy and pointed sticks, you’ll have a crude set of arrows to hunt down small animal or bird games.

    With a few practice shots, you’ll become an expert hunter going for bigger preys.

    Drinking Water

    The human body can go for days without proper food, but won’t last long without fresh water. With a bit of creativity, you can fashion some simple containers from large leaves, tying them together with a few strands of the paracord emergency bracelet.

    When it rains, these containers will collect all the fresh water you’ll need to survive for a few days.

    Pitching Tent

    During the day, the jungle can seem closer to the sun.   At some point, you’ll need some form of shelter to prevent being cremated.

    The serrated knife is sharp enough to saw a few branches for a crude tent.  The paracord has a breakage point of 550 pounds - strong
    enough to bind these branches together for a simple thatched camp.

    Creating Fire

    The paracord survival bracelet fire starter comes with a flint and fire starter.  Simply scratch the flint rod with the serrated knife and in no time you’ll have a fire going.

    The serrated knife can cut small twigs. Just gather a few bundles, and with a few strands of the cord, you’ll have enough tinder for a blaze.

    Nights out in the jungle can see the temperature drop considerably. With a simple fire, you can stay warm and toasty while snacking on your crunchy Bar-B-Q rattlers.

    So, how long can you survive in the jungle?  The reality stars are given 21 days.  You may be lost for many more before help arrives. To endure the harsh elements and live like Dick Van Dyke in the 1966 comedy film Lt. Robinson Crusoe U.S.N., you’ll need just one tool of choice: The Emergency Paracord Tactical Bracelet.

    In a crunch, this bling can transform from a simple fashion accessory to an innovative piece of emergency preparedness tool.  Heck!  You might even emerge from the jungle and walk straight into the set of Naked and Afraid!
