What comes to mind when you hear, security systems? If you’re like me you typically think of locks, alarms, and cameras. While thinking about unusual security systems what comes to your mind? I bet tear gas isn’t something you would have considered. Well, it appears this unusual security system was used in 1953. The Delaware Trust Company in Wilmington, Delaware thought it was the perfect security system. Unfortunately, just like security systems today, they go off accidentally.
1953 For the second time in six months, the Delaware Trust Company’s Wilmington office was cleared when tear gas from its security system escaped and caused a great disruption.
