OUTLET: THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
A new personal safety device that sends an alarm and GPS co-ordinates when a woman feels threatened, has been welcomed by the NRL.
The WanderSafe device has been pioneered by Australian entrepreneur Stephenie Rodriguez and has already been adopted by some NFL teams in the US, including the New England Patriots, as well as the Boston Celtics in the NBA and baseball’s LA Dodgers.
The beacon sends a silent alarm with GPS co-ordinates to three friends when a person feels in danger. It also has a 140 decibel alarm and strobe light.
