MORRISTOWN, NJ - Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) participated in the National Night Out event in Morristown to help support local law enforcement efforts and promote the benefits of outdoor lighting in fighting crime.

JCP&L representatives operated a utility line truck and offered a hands-on demonstration of electric safety equipment and devices.

“National Night Out is an opportunity for residents to come out and interact with local law enforcement officials, civic groups and businesses to help promote safety in our communities,” said Jim Fakult, President of JCP&L.  “Throughout the year, we work with municipalities across our service area to enhance safety by keeping the streetlights on and we encourage homeowners to ensure their property is well lit.”

National Night Out is a campaign that promotes police-community partnership at the neighborhood level to improve safety.
