Delmarva Power Promotes Fire Safety

Delmarva Power's Emergency Services Partnership Program recently donated much needed fire safety alarms to the Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office and carbon monoxide detectors to the City of Wilmington Fire Department.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office received 500, 10-year long-life fire safety alarms. The City of Wilmington Fire Department received 250 carbon monoxide alarms for residents who may not be able to afford them.

"Delmarva Power's Emergency Services Partnership Program has worked with Delaware and Maryland public safety agencies to for strategic operational and community oriented partnerships over the past 15 years," said Glenn Moore, Vice President of the Delmarva Power Region. "These donations are an important example of our continued commitment to being a reliable corporate citizen and public safety partner, dedicated to helping reduce the number of fire-related deaths and injuries in our service territory.

Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse provided the alarms to Delmarva Power at a reduced cost to help support this safety effort. Since 2000, Delmarva Power has donated 21,850 regular smoke alarms, 1,042 special-needs smoke alarms for the hearing impaired, and 2,300 carbon monoxide alarms to fire safety officials in Maryland and Delaware.
