ONTARIO, Calif., Sept. 7, 2017 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Every year millions of parents send their children off to college for the first time and what to pack for that child is top of mind, says MAG Instrument Inc. The days of making sure they have clean sheets, lots of socks and an umbrella are long gone. Kids these days have very different needs than in years past and CollegeMagazine.com has put together a list of the Top Ten Safety and Security Items College Kids Must Have and a MAGLITE flashlight is top of the list.

Being safe and secure on a campus today includes having items like a bullet and blast resistant backpack. It also means carrying an item like a ballistic pen that can break glass in an emergency situation. Being prepared means having a reliable multi-tool that can be used in a variety of situations to provide just the right tool for the job. Being able to see and be seen in any situation is a basic security item and the MAGLITE flashlight tops the list.

“It’s easy to forget about packing safety items when you’re busy buying dorm decor but it’s essential. That’s why our list features key safety items like a MAGLITE flashlight, especially when it comes to walking home late at night from the library,” said CollegeMagazine.com Publisher Amanda Nachman.

“We want students to be proactive about their safety on campus. With this list, parents will have peace of mind that their child is prepared for any situation when they’re away at college,” said Nachman.

On the top of the list is a multi-mode flashlight with a safety wand and lamp feature. The MAGLITE is the choice here.

“Being able to see in any condition is an important safety and security issue for any college student,” said Scott Field, Global VP of Sales and Marketing at MAG Instrument. “College students don’t always keep the most regular hours and whether it’s coming back from a late night in the library or late night out with friends, a MAGLITE provides reliable lighting for any condition.”

– MAGLITE Flashlight
– Bullet Blocker Bulletproof Backpack
– GERBER Multi-Tool
– GERBER Tactical pen
– Emergency USB Charger
