The Whistle Defense Program from
American Whistle Corporation is designed to help colleges,
universities and community policing organizations put safety
whistles into the hands of large numbers of individuals
at very low cost.
AWC works with organizations
around the country that distribute safety whistles to
groups including college freshmen, senior citizens, DARE,
or block watches. Law enforcement personnel encourage the use of safety whistles
for several reasons.
- A safety whistle is an effective lifesaving tool. The sound
of a whistle is more powerful than a cry in the night and sends
out a call for help. The loud shrill sound of a whistle can disorient
- The simple act of carrying a whistle serves as a
constant reminder to the individual to be on guard and be aware
of their surroundings.
- A solid brass whistle is a quality tool
that will last a lifetime. In an era of high-tech cell phones and
Homeland Security alert levels, sometimes relying on the tried
and true can form the basis of the right attitude of self-reliance
- A whistle is fool-proof. Unlike many technological
tools - a whistle does not have a battery that will die and cannot
be destroyed or broken.
- The benefits to the university, police
department or other sponsors from a public relations standpoint
is enormous. A custom imprinted logo or an emergency number imprinted
into the top of one of our durable whistles will serve as a constant
reminder for 10, 20 or even 30 years.
- And remember: the Whistle
Defense Program can be implemented at a very low cost.
considering a Whistle Defense Program, we offer a free Organizer's
Manual that covers how to organize the program from kick-off
through education, training and distribution. Typically,
whistles, ordered for a Whistle Defense program, are individually
poly-bagged with a key ring and personal safety instruction
brochure. The safety brochure can be customized to feature
the names of sponsoring organizations or businesses. Contact
