MAYS LANDING, N.J. — Atlantic
City Electric recently donated 250 smoke alarms to Burlington County Fire
Marshal Mike Reed during a county freeholder meeting as part of the company’s
Emergency Services Partnership Program. Through the program, 2,000 10-year
long-life fire safety alarms will be dispersed to eight counties within
Atlantic City Electric’s service area. The donation provides much needed
resources for county fire marshals, who give the smoke alarms to New Jersey
residents who need them.
like this, Atlantic City Electric continues to support public safety entities
such as fire service, law enforcement and emergency management through our
Emergency Services Partnership Program,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City
Electric region president. “We’re proud to partner with New Jersey’s county
fire marshals in our service territory to help keep residents safe.”
Lowe’s Home Improvement
Center supplied the smoke alarms at a reduced cost to help support this effort.
Since 2000, Atlantic City Electric has donated 24,900 smoke alarms and 720 special-needs
smoke alarms that emit a bright strobe light and high-decibel audible alarm to
alert individuals of the presence of smoke, to fire safety officials in
southern New Jersey.
