Sector 10 Inc. today told investors its initiatives and intellectual property will change the entire dynamic of safety in our larger cities. The new National and International Fire Codes have confirmed the companyâ€™s confidence of its technologies’ viability.
The latest editions of the International Fire Code and the National Fire Protection Association Fire & Life Safety Code (NFPA Fire Code) all recognize the criticalness of having emergency plans and are requiring buildings to have measures in place that protect the occupants, the public and responders. Chapter 10 of the NFPA Fire Code reads: “Every new and existing building or structure shall be constructed, arranged, equipped, maintained, and operated in accordance with this Code so as to provide a reasonable level of life safety, property protection, and public welfare from the actual and potential hazards created by fire, explosion, and other hazardous conditions.”
Chapter 4 of the International Fire Code requires detailed emergency management planning for emergencies, including the training and exercising of fire and other emergency evacuation plans. Chapter 4 of the NFPA Fire Code requires multiple safeguards to protect occupants, stating: “The design of every building or structure intended for human occupancy shall be such that reliance for safety to life does not depend solely on any single safeguard. An additional safeguard(s) shall be provided for life safety in case any single safeguard is ineffective due to inappropriate human actions or system failure.”
Sector 10 is committed to fully adopting all relevant portions of the International Fire Code and the National Fire Protection Association Fire & Life Safety Code into its products and services. By exceeding the basic requirements, the company believes that it is positioning itself to provide users of Sector 10 products with the best available emergency response equipment.
Sector 10â€™s pre-deployed SRU unit contains life support equipment such as gas masks, oxygen, iodine tablets, and other emergency medical supplies, as well as has the ability to transform into an evacuation chair. Equally important as the medical supplies, the units also enable telecommunication between the first responders and the people. “Unfortunately, the public has learned by experience the critical need for effective, clear communication between rescue personnel, whether the event is a natural disaster, or a military or civilian attack,” explained Mr. DeAvila. “When our loved ones are trapped in a life or death situation, how can they be helped without communication?”
