Atlantic City Electric Donates Smoke Alarms to Eight Counties

MAYS LANDING, N.J. (Nov. 22, 2016) - Atlantic City Electric (ACE) reminds residents of the importance in having working fire safety alarms throughout their homes and to test the alarms monthly to ensure they are working properly. ACE provided these life-saving devices to thousands of South Jersey residents.

Through its Emergency Services Partnership Program, ACE donated 2,800 10-year long-life fire safety alarms to fire marshals in the eight counties the company serves. The donation of 350 smoke alarms per county provides much needed resources for county fire marshals who give the smoke alarms to residents in need.

"We are extremely proud to once again partner with our county fire marshals to donate smoke alarms to help keep residents safe," said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. "We're pleased to continue to support public safety entities including fire service, law enforcement and emergency management through donations like this."

Lowe's Home Improvement supplied the smoke alarms at a reduced cost to help support this effort. Since 2000, Atlantic City Electric has donated 31,820 smoke alarms to fire safety officials in southern New Jersey. 

Atlantic City Electric's Emergency Services Partnership Program provides resources for safety initiatives, education, recruitment and retention activities, and scholarship opportunities for police, fire and emergency management officials.
