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.
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.
