BASU Donates Alarms for Seniors
Kate Wiley (far left) and Cathy Goshorn (center left) of The Orinda Association’s Seniors Around Town (SAT) received a donation of personal alarms from the Orinda-based company, BASU. Shown with Wiley and Goshorn are BASU Associates Jessica Berkley (center right) and Libby Cha (far right). The personal alarms, which have a lifetime warranty, emit a piercing alarm when the pin is pulled to deter a criminal, as an animal repellent or as a rescue signal. Unlike Mace, it can be carried on airplanes. “These devices will be very helpful for the seniors we help with transportation needs through SAT,” says Goshorn.
