BG&E RECOGNIZED FOR ITS COMMITMENT TO SAFETY BELT USE

 BG&E RECOGNIZED FOR ITS COMMITMENT TO SAFETY BELT USE
 BALTIMORE, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Maryland Committee for Safety


Belt Use and the State Highway Administration will each honor Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. (NYSE: BGE) for its commitment to safety at a ceremony on Wednesday, Oct. 28 ,at 9 a.m. at the Gas & Electric Building, Liberty and Lexington streets, Baltimore.
 BG&E will receive the inaugural "Trailblazer" special recognition award from the Maryland Committee for Safety Belt Use for the company's long-standing commitment to the use of safety belts and child safety seats, according to Barbara Beckett, the committee's director.
 "BG&E has been a pioneer in both the use and promotion of safety belts, long before there were any laws," said Beckett. "It translated its commitment into a policy that mandates safety belt use for all riders in BG&E vehicles, and has been a pacesetter for the rest of the corporate community. We felt that BG&E should be recognized for its efforts."
 At the same ceremony, BG&E will officially join the State Highway Administration's "70 Plus Honor Roll." The company earned this distinction after two random surveys, held 30 days apart, showed that at least 70 percent of BG&E employees surveyed were observed wearing safety belts in their personal cars during their commute to work.
 The SHA cosponsors this program with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, according to Dennis Atkins, Governor's Highway Safety Coordinator, who added that BG&E is one of the largest area companies to join the honor roll.
 "While we're delighted that our efforts are receiving recognition, we're even more pleased by the fact that they are saving lives," said G. Dowell Schwartz Jr., BG&E's vice president of General Services.
