MagneGas Corporation (MNGA), a leading technology company that counts among its inventions a patented process that converts renewable and waste liquids into MagneGas® fuels, announced that the Pinellas County (FL) Fire Department’s teams of emergency responders, the Technical Rescue Team, have chosen MagneGas2®, and the MagneToteTM as their preferred metal cutting tool. Pinellas Countyis the sixth most populous county in Florida as measured by the state’s Office of Economic and Demographic Research. MagneGas2® and the MagneToteTM are currently used by emergency response teams in several other Florida counties as well.
The MagneToteTM is a fully portable, all-in-one metal cutting torch system using the company‘s advanced cutting fuel made from renewable liquids and waste oils, MagneGas2®. This fuel is safer, cuts almost 40-percent faster, and is more cost effective than acetylene. The MagneToteTM’s lightweight, portable design eliminates the need for long, unwieldy, and unsafe torch hoses. Everything needed to perform the cutting task is in one compact, portable unit. For emergency responders, we believe this can substantially decrease the amount of time needed to set up, time that could be critical to saving a life.
The Pinellas County Fire Department Technical Rescue Teams respond to any incident that requires specialized equipment or skills, including building collapses, trench cave-ins, and industrial accidents. Firefighters selected for a Technical Rescue Team attend specialized skill training and development programs. The Company has been and continues to train these team members in the use of the MagneToteTM system.
Dominic Briganti, Training Coordinator for the Pinellas County Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team stated, “When we respond to an incident, time is often of the essence. MagneGas2® and the MagneToteTM really help us perform our critical tasks effectively, allowing for a more successful outcome. An efficient yet compact cutting tool is paramount to our Rescue teams since truck real estate is our biggest commodity.”
