Whistles are one of the simplest to use, easiest to carry, least expensive and yet still enormously effective safety devices we promote for everyone. Referencing the successful efforts of the late Harvey Milk, our whistle program distributed thousands of free safety whistles every single year.
Whistles work by attracting attention when you are in trouble.
Whistles work when you call police to report hearing a whistle being blown in a repeated way that signals someone is in trouble.
Whistles work when EVERYONE has one, when EVERYONE knows how to use their whistle properly, and most importantly, when EVERYONE knows what to do when they hear a whistle being used.
