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
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
