In times of crisis, bystanders often hesitate to assist someone in peril, figuring someone else will help out. And then there are those hopeless moments when someone facing danger can’t reach their phone to call for help.

Wearsafe can be clipped onto a purse strap, waistband or anywhere else on the body, and with the push of a button, alerts friends and family members that something is wrong and help is needed.
