MEMPHIS, Tenn., Aug. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE -- ATWEC Technologies, Inc. (OTC: ATWT) a US-based company specializing in child safety and protection technologies, today announced that it reached agreement with Caddo Head Start day care centers, to install its patented child reminder safety alarms in sixteen (16) transport vehicles.
The announcement comes on a day of tragedy, as Broward County authorities are investigating after 2-year-old Noah Steed was found dead inside a hot daycare van on Monday. Oakland Park's (FL) Ceressa's Day Care and Preschool has been shut down pending the investigation.
Meanwhile, in New York City, 1-year-old twins died Friday after they were left inside a car for eight hours by their father, who said in an initial court appearance Saturday that he forgot to drop them off at a day care center before going to work.
In fact, since 1990, more than 900 children have died in hot cars, including 97 in Florida, according to national statistics. Of those children, four have died this year. 2018 was the deadliest year for hot car deaths, with 52 fatalities.
ATWT offers cutting-edge technology solutions, including its patented Kiddie Voice™ safety alarms, to help combat this real-life danger by protecting children and giving parents 'peace of mind'.
The Shreveport, LA-based day care supports 11 facilities and over 1,564 children ages 3 through 5. The fleet consists of 16 vehicles, which ATWT will equip with its latest technology solutions for protecting children. The installations will take place on August 5.
"We've had tremendous success with ATWEC's vehicle technologies in the past, and look forward to improving our fleet with the latest upgrades," said Caddo's Director of Transportation Wendell Piper. "With these latest tragedies on national news, it is more urgent than ever to secure our vehicles, and prevent this from ever happening again." In Jacksonville, 4-month old Brooklyn Isaac died in May, while 2-year-old Joy Monell-Merritt and 14-month-old Richard Wighart both died in April from hot car deaths in Perdido Key and Melbourne.
The Company's President Alex Wiley stated, "With children dying in hot cars, and potential danger seemingly around every corner, we feel confident that our broad child safety initiative will protect and enrich the lives of not only the young students, but also the drivers, administrators, and parents. The Company is poised for breakout sales growth, as even one child death is too many, and we will work tirelessly to make this happen."
