    MAYS LANDING, N.J. (November 16, 2017) – Atlantic City Electric’s Emergency Services Partnership Program recently donated much needed fire safety alarms to fire marshals in each of the eight counties the company serves. This is the 17th year Atlantic City Electric has donated these important life-saving devices.

    “Atlantic City Electric’s Emergency Services Partnership Program has worked with New Jersey public safety agencies to raise fire safety awareness and empower residents to embrace proper fire safety practices,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. “We are once again proud to step up and provide these much-needed devices that help ensure the safety of local residents and more importantly, save lives.”

    Fire marshals in the following counties received 3,200 10-year long-life fire safety alarms and will be distributing the devices to residents in need: Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Ocean and Salem.

    Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse provided the alarms to Atlantic City Electric at a reduced cost to help support this safety effort. Since 2000, Atlantic City Electric has donated 35,020 smoke alarms to fire safety officials in southern New Jersey.

    The Atlantic City Electric Emergency Services Partnership Program was developed in 2000 with area first responder organizations, whose personnel work alongside Atlantic City Electric employees during storms and other emergencies. The program helps the group coordinate training, share best practices and even coordinate participation in charitable giving and volunteer activities.
