    Oct 12, 2015

    MAYS LANDING, N.J. —  Atlantic City Electric personnel provided a series of interactive electrical safety demonstrations using the company’s safety trailer Oct. 7 for about 600 students grades two to eight with the Mullica Township School District. The educational event provided an opportunity for children to learn important electrical safety information and the potential dangers associated with electrical wires and equipment.

    “Our linemen do a tremendous job operating the safety trailer that is used throughout the year to educate community members on electrical safety,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. “We are extremely pleased to have performed the safety trailer demonstration for hundreds of Mullica Township students with the hope that these lessons learned will be shared with their siblings, family members and friends.”

    The event was held in conjunction with Mullica Township’s Elwood Volunteer Fire Company Station # 160. Members of the fire company educated students on fire safety. National Fire Prevention Week 2015 was October 4 through 10.

    The Atlantic City Electric Safety Trailer is used throughout the community to educate students, first responders, emergency personnel, among other groups on electrical safety, the dangers associated with working on or around high voltage wires and what can happen if there is contact with an electrical wire without wearing the proper personal protective equipment. The safety trailer includes power lines, poles, transformers, lights as well as metering and other safety equipment.
