Security Stone: Your pocket reminder to be safe.
Why Security Stone Personal Protection Devices?
Security Stone proposes a different solution to the physical problem, and, importantly, addresses the emotional problem. Security Stone personal protection devices are meant to be carried in purses and pockets. They are to provide a small element of physical and emotional security.
What Security Stone Does
You should carry your Security Stone device with you. It is your reminder to pay attention to the things around you. Most of the time the reminder is that things are fine. You will also remember that in sudden dire circumstances you will make up your own mind about how to care for yourself and the people around you. You and your friends will have a plan.
Security Stone Comfort
On the good days plan yourself, plan with friends. Together you are formidable. If Security Stone was a gift remember: someone cares.
Security Stone in Dire Circumstances
At close range you may have nothing to lose so: Throw. When the threat is at medium range: Look, Throw, Go. At long range: Go, Go, Go. When you are safe remember to call 911 and report everything (where, when, who's causing trouble and who's in trouble).
Threat and Situational Awareness
When you see that there is danger immediately assess the overall situation: How many threats? How are they a threat? Who is threatened? How the threat is confined by the room? Know where your friends are. Which direction everyone could and might move? Be aware that circumstances may lead you to directly confront the threat.
Always note exits or escape paths. If nothing is available, then consider where you may be able to hide and be secure.
Fight or Flight
Look so that you know. Will it be safe for you to throw? Will it be safe for you to go?
Consider the options for yourself and for the people around you.
Security Stone is a reminder: Do your best. You have power. You have control. You can take care of yourself. You can take care of your loved ones. You can take on a threat. You can escape.
If it's you or someone you know has troubles, remember that it's normal. Pay attention so that you can help yourself and others.
If you're feeling the effects of trauma, the basics are: Give yourself time to heal and mourn; Don't try and force healing; Have patience with yourself; Be prepared for volatile emotions; If your response worries you or feels out of control, get help.
