John O'Connor helps out a service dog.
This was a cool story from one of our customers. Not a survival situation, but a good use of a Survival Bracelet none the less! Here is his letter to us:
I bought one of your bracelets about a month ago, and found a use for it in that short period of time. I was a Resident Advisor at East Carolina University and one of the residents I was in charge of is physically disabled. He used a power wheelchair and had a service dog to help him open doors, turn on lights, etc. My resident asked me one day to look after the dog (Max) while he went to class for a few hours. Ten minutes after he left the dog started crying and putting his paw on my hand. I realized I didn't know what the dog's signal was to go out, but I was pretty sure this is what he was telling me. I did not have a leash for him. While I was fairly sure that a guide dog wouldn't run away, I'd rather not be the one that found that to be the wrong assumption. So I unraveled my bracelet, doubled it up and put it on the dog's collar. I was certainly thankful I had my Survival bracelet and I'm sure Max was too.
