7Is it legal to wear the Attack Alert?

8Why should I wear The Attack Alert when I carry mace or other forms of self-defense?
The Attack Alert was created to supplement all other forms of self-defense, allowing you another shield or layer of security. It's goal is to make those around you aware that you are in danger, startle the approaching attacker, with the idea of allowing you time to escape and get away. It cannot be knocked out of your hand and can be activated under any circumstance.
9I have an application on my cell phone to call 911 in case of an emergency. Why do I need The Attack Alert?
The Attack Alert was designed to compliment any other safety/security device/program one may have on their person. However, it's purpose is to allow that person the opportunity to be seen, heard and recognized prior to and even during an attack. Keep in mind a surprise attack on your person may not give you the chance to find your cell phone and look for and activate the 911 app. Your cell phone must also be near a tower to work and it, of course, can be knocked out of your hand or taken from you, this rendering this application ineffective. Law Enforcement tells us that it takes 5-7 minutes for a response as a result of a 911 call. In that short amount of time, the person making the call is already under attack or has been attacked or robbed, with the assailant already gone. The Attack Alert is to be activated prior to any such action.
