Natural disasters and emergencies often happen when we least expect it. Our cities continue to grow, yet our nation's security sector and emergency response systems have remained unchanged for decades. Sector 10, Inc. (SECT.OB) has developed a variety of innovative personal protection tools designed to increase people's survivability during emergency situations.

Pericles DeAvila, founder of Sector 10, has been on a mission to provide occupants in high-rise and commercial buildings with safety equipment. Through his passion to the cause, DeAvila has invented a number of safety units, including the Stationary Response Unit (SRU). The SRUs contain essential tools including first aid supplies, iodine tablets, an eye wash system, smoke inhalation masks, trauma kit, strobe light and siren along with tracking technology. The unit's doors can also be converted to a stairway style stretcher.

Sector 10's SRU units have an extended power supply of 1 ½ hours and a two-way voice communication system in the event that responders are unable to reach building occupants quickly. The units are designed to be easily placed near stairways and elevators in high-rise buildings, airports, stadiums, schools, universities, shopping centers, and other large complexes.

Sector 10 hopes to redefine how people view emergencies. By putting pre-deployed resources into the hands of people, the company hopes to save countless lives.
