SABRE Is Sharing Company History!

Today, #ThrowbackThursday is trending across various social media outlets and SABRE thought it would be fun to give you a visual of the history of our company!

The SABRE Security Equipment Corporation factory has come a long way since 1975, and today we’re showing you just how far in pictures.

Pictured below is our first location--where it all began! Located on Stephens Ave. in St. Louis, Missouri, the main floor was used for office space while order processing, warehousing and shipping took place in the basement.

We opened the 2nd location in July of 1981 and worked in both facilities until 1984.  The second location was used to manufacture SABRE products.

Moving on up, SABRE acquired our 3rd location on Miami Street in St. Louis in the summer of 1984! All of the filling, production and office staff were now located in the same building.

From April 1993 until January 2009, SABRE was located at 330 Sun Valley Circle, Fenton, MO. This building had separate areas for office, filling, production, shipping and warehouse.  

Our 5th and current factory is on Sun Park Drive in Fenton, MO is used for order processing, sales support, manufacturing, shipping, quality assurance testing, research and development, and some warehousing.  It is the manufacturing facility where the products are made, tested and shipped!

Florida University Adopts New Model For Campus Safety

Tallahassee, FL- After being one of the 55 colleges and universities named to be investigated by the federal government for mishandled sexual assault complaints, Florida State University is in the process of adopting a new model for making students aware of their power for maintaining a safe campus.
Tallahassee Democrat News reports, FSU's interim president, Garnett Stokes said the university is in the process of hiring both a Title IX director and two sexual violence prevention coordinators before the fall term begins in just five short weeks.
"From my perspective," Stokes said, "one sexual assault is too many."
The university has formed several committees to evaluate and improve their response to sexual violence, and they are preparing to make changes that could take effect next month, Stokes explained.
"We are getting a training module that we will use for our freshmen and intend to extend that to he the entire campus," said Stokes.
The university received negative attention last fall when James Winston, FSU's Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, was named in a sexual assault complaint and was never charged.
FSU's latest efforts may be more than a response to the federal government.
Stokes says, "I wouldn't want to say it's all about trying to meet the guidelines coming out of the White House at this point. For me, for our campus, it's about making sure we're doing the right thing for our campus and our students. Making sure we know what best practices are is pretty critical."
SABRE is joining the discussion on empowering students to take charge of their personal safety on college campuses.
In addition to sexual assault, thousands of college students will find themselves victims of robberies and aggravated assaults.
SABRE’s College Safety Program provides resources and safety techniques for college students around the country. The SABRE College Safety Program will teach students techniques to outsmart potential threats and to protect themselves at a safe distance with the use of SABRE Red Campus Safety pepper gel.
SABRE Red Campus Safety pepper gel reduces wind blow back, has no effect on innocent bystanders and can be used indoors.

Seven-pound Yorkie Put Down After Dog Attack

After an unfortunate dog attack, owners were saddened to put down their small seven-pound Yorkie. The owners are now pleading with authorities to ensure that no one else has to experience what they went through.
Parristar’s online news reports a woman, Desiree Churchill, was walking her 3 small dogs last Sunday afternoon when a large dog mauled one of her dogs after escaping out of a neighbor’s house.
"They got out of the house and started running toward us and Mia huddled in a ball. He picked her up and started shaking her," explained Churchill as she choked back tears.
"I was using the leash handles to try and hit him but it didn't do anything. Finally a couple of guys came from the house and the dog let go and started running down the street."
Churchill went to the veterinarian and X-rays showed Mia had three broken ribs, a gaping wound exposing her intestines and a possible hernia.
After Churchill learned the procedure would cost $4,000 to $6,000, she decided she would have to put little Mia down.
Churchill's sister, Sandra Churchill, went to the neighbour's home to inform them the dog was dead.
"They were very blasé and one guy was holding the dog back while it was growling. His excuse was that one of the dogs was in heat but this is the second attack we know of."
It has been said that neighbors have complained to the SPCA about the dogs' aggressive natures in the past.
The Churchills reported the incident to the police who have referred it on to the SPCA for further investigation.
SPCA agent Ian Harrower said the SPCA gets a large number of calls about dog-on-dog attacks and dog-to-human bites.
"It's very high volume. At least once or twice a week someone calls about a problem. Many of them, like this one, are very serious."
Everyday about 1,000 Americans need emergency care for dog bites. There’s no need for you to join that number.
SABRE provides Protector Dog Attack Deterrent which is designed specifically to help you in these dangerous situations. This natural pepper spray is strong enough to deter most dogs without causing long-term pain or injury.
Walk confidently with Protector knowing you’ve done as much as you can to protect yourself and your dog in an effective and humane way.
