MAYS LANDING, N.J. – Atlantic City Electric recently presented its 2nd Annual Merit of Excellence Award for Commitment to Public Safety to Lt. Nick Massa of the New Jersey State Police.
Massa was recognized for outstanding leadership and service to public safety in southern New Jersey. This award was created to help promote and honor an individual or organization that has committed time and talent to the residents and visitors in our region.
Massa is assigned to the Emergency Management Section, South Region, where he has worked with the New Jersey State Police for 22 years. During this time, he was assigned to various units within the State Police, including Patrol and the S.W.A.T. TEAMS unit. One of his greatest achievements is his effort to encourage all emergency response agencies within the south region to develop partnerships that bridge the gap between the emergency scene, the office and the classroom.
Atlantic City Electric continues to support the need for training and education for the region’s emergency services and public safety personnel. “This award could not have been given to a more deserving individual who continues to give in the name of safety and emergency preparedness.” said Tom Born, Atlantic City Electric Emergency Management Manager.
The award was presented in early May at the New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Conference at the Tropicana Hotel. Atlantic City Electric serves as a sponsor for the conference through its Emergency Services Partnership Program, which provides resources for safety initiatives, education, recruitment and retention activities and scholarship opportunities for police, fire, and emergency management officials.
