FEMA awards $ 74,000 to Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority for
their fire safety program
YOUNGSTOWN, OH, May 28 /CNW/ - Pioneering Technology Corp. of
Mississauga, Ontario (TSX-V: PTE), ("Pioneering") and the Youngstown
Metropolitan Housing Authority (YMHA) recently demonstrated the Safe-T-element
cooking technology to the media. The YMHA will replace all open coil stove top
elements in three of its high rise apartment buildings. The demonstration was
attended by residents and FEMA representatives and was recorded and
broadcasted on the local NBC affiliate's 6pm news broadcast.
Stove top fires are the number one cause of residential fires and
unattended cooking is the leading cause. The Safe-T-element helps prevent
these fires when a heated stove is left unattended. Pioneering's
Safe-T-element is the only technology of its kind that helps prevent these
fires from starting in the first place.
Clifford Scott, Executive Director of the YMHA said, "Pioneering
Technology's Safe-T-element will help us to bring added protection to YMHA
residents. We applied for this grant because we are committed to reducing the
number of cooking fires that our residents experience. In addition, this
product lends itself very well to the other energy efficiency initiatives that
we are executing because this is a green product."
The YMHA was awarded the grant by the U.S. Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Fire Prevention and
Safety (FP&S) grant program.
