Atlantic City Electric Presents Merit of Excellence Award Posthumously to Arthur E. Treon

MAYS LANDING, N.J. - Representatives of Atlantic City Electric recently presented the company's ninth annual Merit of Excellence Award for Commitment to Public Safety to Arthur E. Treon, who died in November. The posthumous presentation was made to Treon's wife, Dora, during the annual New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Conference at the Tropicana Casino & Resort.

"We are honored to recognize Arthur for his many years of service and dedication to emergency management and public safety," said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. "He was a respected leader throughout the state, and many relied on his expertise and willingness to assist with any issue pertaining to public safety."

The Merit of Excellence Award for Commitment to Public Safety was created to honor those who commit their time and talents to the residents and visitors of our region and to recognize individuals or organizations that have made a significant contribution to emergency preparedness and safety in southern New Jersey.

Treon, a lifelong resident of the Cape May area, served as lieutenant with the Cape May County Sheriff's Office, where he rose through the ranks and held various positions. He continued his career as deputy coordinator with the Cape May County Office of Emergency Management.   

Treon also served the community through his involvement with the Town Bank Volunteer Fire Company, where he served as vice president, president, lieutenant, captain, deputy chief and department chief throughout his career. After stepping down as chief, Treon embraced the roles of training officer and safety officer. He was also chief instructor with the Cape May County Fire Academy.
