ATWEC Technologies, Inc.: Palm Beach County Mandates Daycare Van Alarms

Becomes First Florida County to Protect Child Transportation

MEMPHIS, TN--(Marketwire - Aug 18, 2011) - ATWEC Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ATWT), a US-based child safety company, today announced a major breakthrough in its ongoing fight to increase childcare safety awareness throughout the US, as Palm Beach County (FL) voted unanimously to require daycare centers to install safety alarms in any vehicle used to transport children.

The Palm Beach County commissioners voted unanimously to require these safety alarms in all vehicles designed to carry six or more children, and in so doing, became the first county in Florida to implement this requirement. The decision comes a year after 2-year-old Haile Brockington died in a sweltering day care van.

The county's Children's Services Council has set aside up to $100,000 to help day care centers pay for the alarms. Gatana Ebbole, the services council's CEO, said that the reimbursement fund would be used to pay for the one-time initial cost of the alarms.
