Pioneering Technology's Patented Safe-T-element Cooking System is the Only Technology Available Today that Controls High End Heat on Electric Coil Ranges
MONTGOMERY, AL, July 26, 2011 /CNW/ - Pioneering Technology Corp. (TSX-V: PTE) (OTCBB: PTEFF), ("Pioneering"), an energy smart product innovation/consumer goods company, and the Southeastern Association of Fire Chiefs ("SEAFC"), a division of the International Association of Fire Chiefs ("IAFC"), announced today that on June 16th the SEAFC board of directors passed a resolution in support of "high end heat limiting technology" on electric coil ranges and further supports a modification of state and federal agency regulations to allow for new fire safety technology to be utilized and promoted in an effort to reduce/eliminate stovetop cooking fires.
The SEAFC is represented by the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Douglas Cline, President of the SEAFC said of the resolution, "Cooking fires are one of the leading causes of fires across the United States. The Southeastern Association of Fire Chief's recognizes the need for proactive approaches in preventing fires and reducing civilian injuries. This technology, if embraced, will have a significant impact on this component of the fire problem."
Pioneering's patented Safe-T-element cooking system is the only technology available today that provides high end heat limiting capabilities for electric coiled ranges. This 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 50,000 ranges in multi-residential housing throughout North America helping to eliminate the number one cause of household fire.
The SEAFC unanimously passed the following official resolution in support of "high end heat limiting technology" for electric coiled ranges:
WHEREAS, Cooking equipment is the leading cause of residential fires and home fire injuries in the United States; and
WHEREAS, Unattended cooking and combustibles too close to the cooking surface, such as towels, paper products, etc., are major contributing factors to these fires; and
WHEREAS, Unattended cooking is the leading factor contributing to cooking fires; and
WHEREAS, Cooking fires are the leading cause of home fire injuries, These fires accounted for 40% of all reported home structure fires and 36% of home civilian injuries; and
WHEREAS, Ranges are the leading type of cooking equipment involved in these fires; and
WHEREAS, Education and code enforcement alone have not yielded the desired results when it comes to elimination cooking fires; and
WHEREAS, Tested affordable technology for electric coil ranges exist to significantly reduce the number of these fires and burned food incidents by reducing the high end temperature at which burners operate with no appreciable difference in cooking times or quality; and
WHEREAS, High-end heat regulation technology currently available reduces the amount of energy used by the range by as much as 50%;
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Southeastern Association of Fire Chiefs supports this cooking system technology and further supports a modification of state and federal agency regulations to allow for new fire safety technology to be utilized and will promote it in an effort to reduce or eliminate stovetop cooking fires.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, the President of the Southeastern Association of Fire Chiefs has hereunto subscribed his name and has caused the Official Seal of the Association to be hereunto affixed on this 16th day of June 2011.
Pioneering CEO Kevin Callahan said of the resolution, "Nobody understands the stovetop cooking fire problem, accidental or otherwise, in the United States better than the fire service. These are the men and women who put themselves in harm's way everyday to help protect us all. The numbers are staggering and we are very pleased to be working with them in their efforts to eliminate the number one cause of household fire."
