A personal alarm is a small device that can emit a loud siren-like sound. It is activated either by a button, or a tag that, when pulled, sets the siren off. These small, noisy and easy to use alarms can be utilised in a variety of ways beyond personal safety.
Here are a few scenarios for you to mull over:
Remember when Smash Speciesism took some helium balloons into Imperial College London? They disrupted the vivisection awards using a variety of tactics, one of them setting off personal alarms tied to helium balloons released inside the auditorium. Any room with high ceilings makes a good location for such a disruption.
Are your local fascists organizing a talk? An alarm set off and thrown in their direction might drown them out!
Need a distraction so security focuses on a certain location? Well placed personal alarms might get their attention.
A horse race near you? Alarms placed around the premises have cost these places hundreds of thousands. Just make sure you’re gone before police or security arrive!
Thrown into a fur shop? Takes just a few seconds and can clear out a shop faster than our best megaphone loving mates.
Set one off and throw into the bushes outside someone’s bedroom window. For extra points aim for the gutters! Maybe it’s the cull director, local fash or the owner of the fur shop your campaign is targeting. If you know where they live then this is one way to make sure they can’t sleep at night.
This is just for entertainment but we advise that you think about traceability when purchasing. Are you buying them with card? Are they distinctive or a mass produced model? Have you handled them with gloves, or would fingerprints be found?
Go have fun with your pocket sized friend, not that we endorse you causing any trouble!
