Sector 10, Inc. (SECI.OB) Up Over 70% Following CEO Message and Extensive Newsletter Coverage

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Sector 10, Inc. shares are currently trading at $0.24, up 71.43%, on incredible volume of nearly 3.5 million traded shares. Today, Beacon Equity Research, Microcap Voice, Penny Stocks Finder, Stock Preacher, Penny Stocks Finder, StockHideout, Investor Soup and FHPS covered the company in their stock newsletters. With an average daily volume of 298,830, the stock has never traded so many shares in a single day.

Sector 10 is focused on redefining the emergency response paradigm from centralized equipment staging to onsite pre-deployed resources. Sector 10 is the only emergency response systems company so strongly emphasizing pre-deployed resources as the way to save lives, avert injuries, reduce liability and “Bridge the Survival Gap.”

Yesterday after the closing bell, Sector 10’s CEO Pericles DeAvila provided investors with the following message:

I wanted to personally wish you a Happy New Year and a prosperous 2010. Sector 10, Inc. is looking forward to the year ahead and the impact our technology will have on the US market and globally. Our life saving technologies represent a parading shift for emergency response and will change the industry as it stands today. In their early stages, many new technologies face unexpected challenges during the process of introduction into new markets. In 2009, Sector 10, Inc. successfully dealt with many of these unexpected challenges which delayed the introduction of our services and products to market. With new capital and a clear path to execution, we are prepared to launch our products and technologies.

In 2010, we expect the PLX-3D system and our self-rescue devices will be adopted by several US cities as a tool that will allow responders, emergency personnel and facilities managers the ability to manage population, facilities and response systems during incidents or disaster of any magnitude from a mobile interface. The PLX-3D system is a bridging/integration platform that integrates Sector 10′s pre-deployed self-rescue devises (MRU and SRUs), with the latest technology in personnel tracking, 3D video surveillance, full spectrum communications and a layered toolbox of interoperable accountability systems to save lives and coordinate response capabilities during times of incidental uncertainty. Sector 10′s systems are fully self-sufficient and rely on a multitude of redundancy protocols to ensure their survivability during losses of power and legacy terrestrial communications.

Thank you for your past and continued support as we launch our products in 2010. We will continue to release news of our progress and achievements as they develop.

Happy New Year!

Sector 10, Inc. (SECI.OB) Submits Proposals for Pilot PLX-3D System Deployment

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

Sector 10, Inc. announced this morning that it has submitted proposals to multiple cities for the deployment of the Pilot PLX-3D system. These proposals were sent to those who inquired about the system following the announcement of the Pilot PLX-3D deployment program in the July 21, 2009 press release. The Pilot PLX-3D system and SRU life saving products are designed to help communities better prepare for all kinds of disasters and meet the new 2009 Fire and Life Safety Codes.

Sector 10 CEO Pericles DeAvila said, “The PLX3D significantly reduces the 72 to 96 hours Current National Response after a disaster or incident strikes. People are recognizing that the PLX-3D system represents a paradigm shift in emergency response capabilities. With the implementation of this technology, a City or Community will become a leader in emergency response while improving its efforts to save lives.”

Sector 10 believes that the key to a person’s safety is knowledge. In multiple ways Sector 10′s emergency response products are similar to a seatbelt or an airbag. A person won’t need it everyday, but when an incident happens, the products save lives.

Sector 10 has strategically positioned itself and anticipates revenues to grow as cities and communities start enforcing the new Fire and Life Safety regulations. The company also expects that insurance companies will require policy and coverage changes to adapt to the new fire-codes in order to assist in the mitigation of potential liabilities resulting from an emergency incident. These changes are expected to increase the demand for Sector 10 products and services.

Sector 10, Inc. (SECI.OB) Bridges the Survival Gap

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Sector 10 Inc. is a company which is redefining the emergency response industry and reshaping how emergency response is handled by the public and private sector. The company is doing this through its unique emphasis on onsite pre-deployed resources as the way to save lives and reduce liability.

Sector 10 offers both stationary and mobile response units which can be placed in any sizable building with a large amount of occupants. The units have a number of features which will aid the occupants in bridging the survival gap until emergency responders arrive. Key features of the units include:

• Backup power supply and strobe light
• First aid supplies, including iodine tablets and defibrillator
• Pick/axe/crowbar/rope
• Small supply of food and water
• Wireless, communications technology, cameras
• Gloves and Masks

The masks provided are one feature that is an example of the quality of the company’s units. The masks offer 15-45 minutes of protection against harmful inhalants, chemical and biological airborne particles and other combustion gases. The masks also provide an unlimited field of vision for the wearer and protection from eye irritation caused by smoke. It is this type of product from Sector 10 that helps people bridge the survival gap.

Sector 10, Inc. (SECI.OB) is Redefining Emergency Response

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Natural disasters, security breaches and terrorist attacks in the past decade have revealed vulnerabilities in the way public and private sectors handle and respond to emergencies. The security sector and the emergency response methods and systems have remained virtually unchanged for decades. This is where Sector 10 is different. Instead of addressing emergencies on a reactive basis, the company uses a proactive independent pre-deployed system.

Sector 10′s pre-deployed system has numerous capabilities including:
• First aid, eye flush, and air tanks for responders
• Masks that will filter smoke, biological and chemical hazards
• Evacuation chairs to extricate injured or disabled occupants from a building
• Video surveillance for each floor of the building
• Employee and tenant tracking for evacuations with real-time 3D visualization
• Ability to provide first responders with instant awareness of the situation

Sector 10 believes pre-deployment of assets enhances both the ability to escape from a disaster scene and the survivability of those trapped at scenes of disaster. This is achieved by not only having equipment at the scene already, such as masks, but having better communications between the people in need and the first responders. That is the company’s goal – to bridge the survival gap.

Sector 10, Inc. (SECI.OB) Offers Cutting-Edge Stationary Emergency Response Units

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Sector 10 Inc. is a company which is reshaping the emergency response industry. It is the only emergency response systems company that is so strongly emphasizing using onsite pre-deployed resources as a way to reduce liability, avert injuries and save lives.

One of Sector 10′s primary products is the stationary response unit. This stationary response center contains the essential equipment needed for disasters and crisis situations. Some of the company’s stationary response unit features include: chemical and biological masks, iodine tablets, eye wash system, first aid supply packs, cameras, computer and communication features.

Sector 10 is integrating a new media platform with its SRU (standard response unit) product line called SRU-Media. These units provide all the pre-deployed resources found in the company’s SRU, while offering something else. This something else is the ability to display various types of advertising, search results, corporate branding, AMBER alerts, public service announcements, venue directory services, and real-time evacuation instructions.

The SRU-Media unit is intended to be placed in high traffic public venues such as airports, convention centers, mass transit stations, entertainment venues, sports stadiums and arenas, and retail locations – wherever the public is found in masses.

Sector 10′s SRU-Media units are intended to generate revenue during times of normal operation. The advertising dollars that may be generated by the units can more than offset the expense of these multi-purpose units. With the widespread adoption of the company’s SRU-Media units, Sector 10 is building one of the largest proprietary digital networks in the world. This is in addition to the company’s main focus of saving lives in the event a disaster strikes.

Sector 10, Inc. (SECI.OB) Continues To Grow International Team

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Sector 10, Inc., the emergency response systems company focused on pre-deployment of life-saving resources for building occupants and emergency responders, has made a point of recruiting senior level people with national and international experience in emergency response and preparedness. The approach clearly represents a long-term strategy of building a strong link to key organizations and decision makers around the world, creating an unparalleled foundation for the company’s future growth.

Sector 10’s commitment to this policy was reflected by their recent announcement that Hugh Neville Cholmondeley, a form senior level UN official with 28 years of international experience in disaster preparation and relief, will join the company’s Business Advisory Board. He will also serve as advisor for Sector 10’s worldwide deployment of their Mobile Response Units (MRUs) for humanitarian and relief operations.

Sector 10, Inc. (SECI.OB) to Help Meet Challenges of the New 2009/2010 Fire Codes and Regulations

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Sector 10 Inc., the only emergency response systems company so strongly emphasizing pre-deployed resources as the way to save lives, avert injuries, and reduce liability, announced today that it has already received inquiries from major corporations around the world for its solutions as well as proposals for strategic alliances.

Regulatory Agency Requirements for 2009/2010 helped by Sector 10′s technologies include:
* Uniform Fire Code
* International Fire Code
* OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration)

Sector 10, Inc. CEO, Pericles DeAvila, stated, “The new fire codes and life safety standards are no surprise. A multibillion dollar industry in post-disaster recovery was created since 9/11 when preventative measures should have been the focus. Since inception, Sector 10 has been strongly emphasizing pre-deployed resources as the way to address the needs of the affected with PRE-DISASTER planning and PRE-DEPLOYED SOLUTIONS.”

Businesses that have been affected by a catastrophic incident causing the loss of life or injured personnel understand what a profound effect the loss of key personnel can have on a corporation’s ability to continue. Coupled with the cost of recovery, liability exposures and revenue losses can be daunting. Millions of dollars are spent each year on underwriting approaches to hedge these risks. Sector 10′s solutions coupled with the PLX-3D technology were designed to save lives and help companies meet the new regulations, reducing liabilities and risks while saving lives.

DeAvila also sated, “The new codes and standards are a clear departure from old paradigms and a welcome sight as we have been positioning ourselves to become the leader in this new emerging market. I believe this to be the next billion dollar opportunity.”

Pre-deploying Sector 10, Inc.’s (SECI.OB) Life Saving Products

Friday, June 19th, 2009

Sector 10, Inc. is focused on introducing an entirely new paradigm in public safety. While billions of tax dollars are wasted in emergency response, little is spent on preparedness. By pre-deploying emergency life response equipment, the company is leading the way toward enabling disaster victims to take care of themselves until first responders arrive on the scene.

However, disaster victims aren’t the only ones reaping the lifesaving benefits of implementing Sector 10’s products. With new requirements just out, building owners could also benefit from lower insurance costs due to decreased liability risks. In fact, with the new Fire Codes introduced and as the company deploys its systems across the nation, building owners and tenants could actually increase their liability exposure by not having Sector 10′s products.

Here are just a few of the major hotel franchisers that would potentially benefit most from implementation: Marriott International Inc. (NYSE: MAR); Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. (NYSE: HOT); and Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH). Construction services companies such as Tutor Perini Corp. (NYSE: TPC) and KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) could also benefit in an alternative way by promoting Sector 10 products to their clients, securing a percentage of the sales revenues for themselves.

Sector 10 is the only emergency-response system company placing such strong emphasis on pre-deployed resources as a way to save lives, avert injuries, and reduce liability. The company is in the right place at the right time to lead an extremely fragmented industry and dominate a tremendous growth opportunity. Sector 10 may be one of the most undervalued gems in the marketplace.

Sector 10, Inc. (SECI.OB) Sees New National and International Fire Codes as Confirmation It’s at the Right Place at the Right Time

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

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 company’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 10’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?”

Sector 10, Inc. (SECI.OB) Appoints Vice President of Operations and Chief Operations Officer

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Sector 10, Inc. announced this morning that John Gargett, who currently heads the Operations Committee on the Board of Directors, has been appointed to the position of Vice President of Operations and Chief Operations Officer. Mr. Gargett is already working with Sector 10 to formulate a 5-year growth strategy.

After a comprehensive review of Sector 10, Mr. Gargett is convinced that Sector 10′s prospects for growth are substantial.

The SRU has profound implications for protecting people confronted with life-threatening situations and the MRU has equally profound implications for humanitarian operations around the globe.”

Mr. Gargett retains more than 25 years experience in crisis, emergency and risk management. One of the things about the business model of Sector 10 that impressed Mr. Gargett is the way Public Safety agencies benefit by adopting Sector 10 products and services in their communities, because when a system is put in place, they augment the needs of the responder, yet there is no cost for them. “Sector 10 is about saving lives,” he affirmed. “When the systems are put in place, and emergency responders have full access to the information without cost to their agencies, and they have the ability to provide Personnel Accountability, it’s a win-win for everyone.”

According to the press release, Mr. Gargett’s will first begin filling key positions within Sector 10, identifying and executing acquisitions of other like-minded firms, and building a new Humanitarian Program where the MRUs can be provided worldwide for emergency relief through the DeAvila Foundation and in conjunction with international aid agencies.

Mr. Gargett is recognized nationally and internationally as an expert in Crisis Management. He has worked in over forty countries and assisted the United Nations in designing systems for the monitoring of relief supplies in the former Yugoslavia and Somalia. He has provided expert lectures to Japanese private sector companies on the threats facing, and working in, hostile or overseas environments.

Sector 10, Inc.’s (SECT.OB) Pericles Logix System Gives Responders Real-Time Location of Survivors during an Emergency

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Humans are creatures of habit. We tend to keep the same morning routine and are apt to sleep better if we keep the same bedtime routine. But when we’re caught in an emergency, we’re oftentimes left in a heap and unsure of what to do. Of course if we’re able to find information about what is happening and what we should do about it, then we’re more at ease.

Sector 10, Inc., an emergency response systems company, has the tools that enable everyday citizens to get critical information when a disaster hits. The company has developed an interactive software program called the “Pericles Logix System” that works in conjunction with Sector 10’s stationary and mobile response units (SRU’s and MRU’s) to provide responders with life-saving data during a disaster. The software application has been configured to provide responders with the ability to track assets, survivors and responders.

The Pericles Logix System is designed to gather information and monitor real-time data to provide responders with the most accurate information possible. Upon placement at any site, 3D and CAD/CAM drawings of a building are installed into the SRU’s. Each SRU creates a virtual zone for tracking survivors and equipment, as well as responders. During an emergency, all the tagged equipment and personnel are overlaid on a 3D map of the building so that responders can easily determine where survivors are located throughout a building.

The information on the Pericles Logix System is secure and can only be accessed during an emergency situation. Each SRU enables responders to communicate with survivors in each virtual zone through a number of systems, such as VoIP telecommunications, public wireless networking, cellular networking, 900 MHz radios, and secured wireless networking. The variety of communication systems built into the SRU’s are important since the ability to communicate is a key to survival and is oftentimes the first system to fail. Using this system, responders will be able to communicate with survivors and direct them as far away from dangerous zones as possible.

Sector 10, Inc. (SECT.OB) Brings Life-Saving Tools to Ordinary People

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Most people can easily recall scenes from a variety of natural and man-made disasters in the last decade. We can all remember the scenes of destruction in 2005 of Hurricane Katrina. Then there are the images that many Americans witnessed live on television the morning of September 11, 2001.

As we saw after the tsunami of 2004 and Hurricane Katrina, trained emergency personnel are often overwhelmed by the devastation and the need surrounding them. It can take emergency responders as much as 72 to 96 hours to be fully deployed to an incident. Most responders show up with special equipment such as full body- suits and oxygen masks to protect themselves. But what about the ordinary people who they are coming to help?

Sector 10, Inc. is attempting to change the current emergency framework that the U.S. has in place. Pericles DeAvila, President and CEO of Sector 10, survived a devastating earthquake that struck the Azores in 1980, which took the lives of several of his friends. DeAvila has spent the last 10 years studying emergency situations. Based upon his study, DeAvila has written a book that details how things need to be structured to increase the chance of survival of those caught in a disaster.

Rather than build up the number of tools that trained personnel might bring to an emergency, Sector 10 and DeAvila are attempting to place safety tools into the hands of everyday citizens. When pre-deployed assets are in place, people will use their natural instinct to survive and help themselves during an emergency rather than wait helplessly. Sector 10’s stationary response units (SRU) can easily be positioned in main thoroughfares at office buildings, schools, shopping malls, and sports venues to provide citizens with a level of safety during a disaster. Not only are the SRUs stocked with chemical/biological masks, first-aid supplies, water, and iodide pills, the units also have a wireless communication system that will give survivors accurate information from emergency responders on what has happened and what they need to do.

Sector 10 hopes to expand every citizen’s ability to survive during any type of emergency. The company’s pre-deployed assets will provide ordinary people with the ability to become more self-sufficient and have the tools needed to survive during an incident.

Sector 10 Inc. (SECT.OB) – An Emergency Response Industry Leader

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

Sector 10 Inc. is focused on redefining the emergency response paradigm from centralized equipment staging to onsite pre-deployed resources. Sector 10 is the only emergency response company so strongly emphasizing pre-deployed resources as the way to save lives, avert injuries and reduce liabilities.

Sector 10 believes that events over the past decade have revealed vulnerability in the way that both the public and private sector respond to emergencies. This vulnerability is the result of emergency response systems having remained virtually unchanged for decades. Sector 10 believes that the path to follow is one from being a reactive dependent paradigm to a proactive independent pre-deployed system.

Sector 10 products include both stationary response units (SRU) and mobile response units (MRU). The company’s MRUs provide the mobility, modularity, customization and personalization that first responders need when they arrive at a disaster site. An MRU effectively provides a portable sanctuary – a desperately needed safe environment for victims and emergency professionals. These response units offer shelter, utilities, comforts, supplies and equipment.

Sector 10 has two types of stationary response units – a regular SRU and a SRU with media (SRU-Media). The regular SRU offers first responders and building occupants with many critical features including: first aid supplies such as an eye wash system and iodine tablets, life saving equipment such as chemical and biological masks, occupant tracking through a real-time 3D interface, and emergency communications abilities.

The company’s SRU with media, in addition to the multiple benefits listed above, also offer messaging components to generate revenue channels during times of normal operations. SRU-Media includes a flat screen video monitor that can be used for advertising, corporate branding and other messaging needs. This allows purchasers of the unit to convert a non-revenue producing, must-have device into an interactive revenue generating product.
