Mace Brand announces free overnight shipping of Mace Alert 911 to states affected by Hurricane Florence


CLEVELAND, Ohio – Hurricane Florence, an extremely powerful Category 4 storm, is set to hit the states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and parts of the Mid-Atlantic states. Many sources say that this storm is expected to affect millions this week, as some states have declared a state of emergency and evacuations. To help give peace of mind to people in those states, we are offering free overnight shipping to Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia on the Mace Alert 911 product if ordered between now and Thursday, September 13 at 3 p.m. EST.

“With the simple push of a button, the user is connected directly to 911,” said John McCann, CEO and President of Mace Brand. “Having the Mace Alert 911 on hand during a time of crisis will give a sense of safety to many people affected by Hurricane Florence. The two-way voice capability allows for instant communication with 911 operators and since it is battery operated there is no need to worry about an electrical outlet.”

Mace Alert 911 works anywhere in the U.S. where there is a cellular connection, the device will ping the closest tower to your location so you can talk to the 911 operator and best of all does not require any phone contract or any monthly subscription fees. The device includes a lanyard connection and an optional clip for easy access in case of an emergency. Only cost is the purchase price for the unit as Mace will ship it for free. The device is battery operated and can be shared with loved ones.

Deliveries may be subject to impacted weather delay depending upon delivery location. We will do our best to work with the delivery carriers in affected areas.
