BGE's Nicholas Weber and the Aberdeen Volunteer Fire Department

Exelon employees are committed individual volunteers. We encourage them to support the causes they’re passionate about.

​"Being a firefighter has taught me many things," he says.

Nicholas Weber has been with BGE for 10 years, inspired by his father who has 30 years with the company. After a serious accident in high school, Nicholas learned first-hand about the importance of first responders and community service. As soon as he was able, he began volunteering with the Aberdeen Volunteer Fire Department.

According to Nicholas, his volunteer work "is my greatest accomplishment in life." The Aberdeen Volunteer Fire Department provides fire, EMS and rescue services in Harford County, Maryland, with 48 paid EMS providers and 75 volunteer fire and EMS personnel. Nicholas is a 10-year volunteer there. For the past five years, he has been the fire line captain, organizing trainings and mentoring for younger members. He logs more than 1,000 hours a year at the firehouse.

In our recent Energy for the Community Awards, Nicholas won the Excellence Award and an additional $20,000 for the Aberdeen Volunteer Fire Department.

At Exelon, individual initiative drives our success.

Exelon's executives serve on hundreds of nonprofit organization boards. We also field Exelon teams of volunteers, and help employees find community service opportunities. But what impresses us the most? Employees' drive to volunteer for causes that they're passionate about.

Volunteerism is part of who we are. Our employees are purpose-driven in their work - and also on their own time. In 2014, nearly 5,000 Exelon employees spent more than 112,000 hours volunteering with nonprofits in the diverse communities we serve. We encourage them to track their hours so we can recognize and reward their work.
