Summary

There are about 7-8million reported annual fires. At the beginning of the 21st century there was about 7,3 billion earth population. At the beginning of the 21st century there was about 7,3 billion earth population. Annual fire deaths were about 70000 -80 000 and 500 000 - 800 000 fire injuries.
The Problem:
94% of fire deaths occurs in homes and buildings, and people spend about 80% of the time in buildings. In an ideal world all industrial, commercial, public places as well as residential would have an affordable self-activating fire extinguisher strategically positioned in known areas of potential threat, so that if a fire should start and regardless of whether someone is present to or not, the device would disperse extinguishing chemicals and extinguish a fire in the early stages and avert loosing valuable information, assets and even property.

Notable Achievements

  • A distribution agreement has been achieved with the overseas manufacturer
  • I spent a significant number of years working as a Buyer in a procurement environment of some of the leading construction companies in the country.

In addition another lady who also holds an MBA degree will be working on consultancy basis to assist the company in developing efficient strategies
  • We are currently putting in place a strong management team made of people with the requisite skills and experience
