Atlantic City Electric's Jerry Critelli Jr. and the Elwood Volunteer Fire Company

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

“It’s a way of life more than anything”​

Jerry Critelli Jr., a Transportation Supervisor for Atlantic City Electric (ACE), is a 35-year volunteer at the Elwood Volunteer Fire Company. Jerry has had many responsibilities in his volunteer role including  firefighter, captain, chief engineer and safety officer.  Now serving as the Director of the Fire Department, Jerry helps promote awareness and safety in the surrounding communities.

Because of Jerry’s incredible devotion and commitment to the Elwood Volunteer Fire Company, he has been named Firefighter of the Year twice. With the support of ACE, Jerry plans on continuing to serve his community for years to come. 

Elwood Volunteer Fire Company will use the Achievement Award grant to purchase an electronic sign that will provide real-time community information such as events, safety messages and weather alerts.
