Media Invitation: Live Demonstration of Revolutionary Fire Fighting Technology in Ste-Anne-Des-Lac, Quebec on September 9, 2012

STE-ANNE-DES-LACS, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 7, 2012) - AFG Flameguard Ltd. ("AFG" or the "Company") (CNSX:AFG) is pleased to invite representatives of the media to attend the Company's live fire demonstration of its revolutionary DSPA (Dry Sprinkler Powder Aerosol) fire suppression technology on September 9, 2012 in Ste-Anne-des-Lacs, Quebec. AFG is a life safety technology company marketing innovative fire suppression and prevention products and services. This demonstration in cooperation with the Ste-Anne-des-Lacs Fire Department will be conducted using a house that has been donated for firefighter training purposes. Professional and volunteer fire departments from municipalities in the region including Ville de Laval and Ville de Saint-Jérôme will be in attendance. Provincial and local government representatives as well as commercial and residential property owners are expected to attend.

AFG's demonstration is part of an ongoing initiative to introduce and market DSPA fire suppression technology to fire departments across Canada. DSPA-5 hand-held portable units are now in use in over 175 fire departments in eastern Canada. The successful use of this revolutionary fire suppression technology has assisted firefighters in saving structures and preserving contents that could have easily been lost due to the devastating impact of fire. The recent deployments of the DSPA-5 device by fire departments in Canada has resulted in millions of dollars in savings related to less property and content damage, environmental contamination, lower associated costs and personal safety.


DSPA utilizes environmentally friendly waterless aerosol technology to rapidly suppress fire. The use of DSPA technology significantly reduces air, water and soil contamination caused by excessive amounts of water used in conventional methods of fire fighting. Water is often not readily available or accessible in sufficient quantity and may take valuable time in getting transported to the site of a fire which may result in the total loss of property and life. DSPA technology can buy valuable time to assist firefighters prior to using conventional methods and is a valuable resource for people looking to protect their property from fire.

Representatives of the media that wish to attend this live demonstration are requested to contacted AFG's representative Mr. Alain St. Jacques at (514) 862-9272.
