One second that can save your life

You are lying in your bed, late at night. Suddenly, you hear some glass breaking downstairs, and you see a flashlight outside your bedroom door. Your alarm system is broken, and you don’t have a dog. It’s you, your kids – and these bad guys in your home. What to do?

An elderly man gets up from his afternoon nap, and suddenly feels faint – and collapses on the floor, breaking his hip. His phone is way up high, out of reach.

Luckily, in both of these cases, the people in our story made the smart move of keeping their car keys with them. Immediately, with no extra hassle or expense, they were able to call for help by using the alarm on their car.

The moral of the story is: Always have your car keys and the car panic button handy. It may save your life.
