For Immediate Release
MAYS LANDING, N.J. - Atlantic
City Electric recently donated 250 smoke alarms to Atlantic County Fire Marshal
Whitey Swartz 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 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.
