How to Choose a Safety Whistle


A whistle is an inexpensive and highly effective way of protecting yourself in the event of an emergency or threatening situation and should be carried by everyone at all times.

Why it is Important to Carry a Safety Whistle:

Being Proactive: It is important to be proactive in knowing what to do in a threating situation. Using a whistle is recommended in many situations requiring self-defense and by carrying your whistle at all times, you are taking charge of your personal safety in a very practical way.

Frighten Animals or Attackers: A whistle can be used to frighten away someone who means you harm or alert those nearby to call the police. It can also be used to scare away animals.

Gets Attention: Blowing a whistle is better at getting attention and requires less energy than shouting. Loud whistles, like Fox 40 pealess whistles, will be heard above ambient noise over a long distance. The noise of the whistle will help attract attention and assist with getting the help you need.

Will Not Fail: A phone or GPS could fail if you run out of battery or signal. A Fox 40 whistle is designed to be faultless and always work when you need it to.

Important Safety Whistle Features:

Loud and Heard Over Long Distances: You want your whistle to be heard. Fox 40 pealess whistles produce a 90 - 120 decibel sound that will be heard above ambient noises such as engine roars and breaking waves, over great distances.

Resistant to Freezing, Jamming or Deteriorating and Cannot be Overblown: When you’re in an emergency you want to ensure your whistle will not fail you. Many whistles have been known to malfunction under certain conditions, so it’s important to choose a pealess whistle that delivers a high-pitched, penetrating sound.  Fox 40 produces many top quality pealess whistles. The pealess design, with no moving parts, makes Fox 40 whistles resistant to freezing, jamming or deteriorating. These whistles cannot be overblown. The harder you blow, the louder the sound!  The pea styled whistles can cause issues because when dirt or moisture gets inside the whistle, they lose their efficiency. Also, if you blow a pea whistle too hard, the pea can get stuck and no noise will be produced.

Easily Accessible: Always keep your whistle in a place that is easily accessible to you in an emergency. Fox 40 whistles also offer a breakaway lanyard attachment which breaks away when pressure is put on it. This is an important feature as it ensures there is less risk of it being used against you in a threatening situation.
