Highlighted as a "Quality-of-Life" Improvement and Cost Saving Measure
SAN DIEGO, CA, Jan. 31, 2012 /CNW/ - Pioneering Technology Corp. (TSX-V: PTE; OTC BB: PTEFF), ("Pioneering"), an energy smart product innovation and consumer goods company,
announced today that Headquarters for the U.S. Air Force Civil Engineer
Support Agency ("HQ AFCESA") recommends the installation of
Safe-T-element on all existing residential ranges to improve the
"quality-of-life" for tenants of government-owned, government-operated
Military Family Housing ("MFH"). The announcement was made at the
Professional Housing Management Association/Military Housing and
Lodging Institute's Professional Development & Trade Expo in San Diego.
The recent A-Gram written by Senior Fire Protection Engineer Raymond N.
Hansen and distributed to all base civil engineers, fire prevention,
facility managers and housing managers entitled Range Top Fire Prevention System for Residential Type Kitchen Ranges, instructed that, "(Military) installations now have the opportunity to prevent the most
common cause of MFH fires and potentially reduce operating costs. This
product (Safe-T-element) is unique because it prevents a fire rather
than trying to suppress it".
The A-Gram goes on to highlight the following:
"Cooking is the leading cause of residential fires (44%). Previously,
systems intended for fire suppression were the only option, but they
cost more money than they saved. Now a solution is available that will
prevent these fires from ever starting. This is the supplemental safety
device known as the Safe-T-element"…
…"Installation of the Safe-T-element device on existing coil burner
ranges is suggested as a "quality-of-life" improvement for tenants of
government-owned, government-operated MFH. An additional benefit is
reducing the number of responses that will be required from the
installation's fire emergency services"…
…"Also, Section 6-3.2 of UFC 3-600-01, Fire Protection Engineering for
Facilities, requires that a residential range-top extinguishing system
be installed to protect certain residential-type ranges installed in
non-residential-type buildings. The Safe-T-element device is approved
in lieu of those required range top extinguishing systems, which will
significantly reduce range installation costs and increase fire
Pioneering's patented Safe-T-element cooking technology has a track
record of success helping to prevent stove top cooking fires while also
saving energy. Available on new ranges or as a retrofit, this
technology is now installed on over 60,000 ranges in multi-residential
housing throughout North America and in thousands of Military Family
Housing units on U.S. military bases around the world.
Pioneering CEO Kevin Callahan noted that, "This is a very meaningful
development for this technology which is having great success in MFH
housing around the world helping protect those who protect us. We are
grateful for the confidence the military has placed in this product and
we are honored to be playing a small role in helping to protect these
men and women and their families from the dangers of stovetop cooking
