PHILADELPHIA ELECTRIC COMPANY MAKES EMPLOYMENT HOTLINE ACCESSIBLE TO THE HEARING IMPAIRED

 PHILADELPHIA ELECTRIC COMPANY MAKES EMPLOYMENT HOTLINE
 ACCESSIBLE TO THE HEARING IMPAIRED
 PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The hearing impaired can now easily access the employment hotline of the Philadelphia Electric Company (PECO) (NYSE: PE) through the use of a separate telephone number that is equipped with a telecommunications device for the Deaf (TDD), a typewriter-like device that allows those who cannot hear to "see" and "send" messages over telephone lines.
 The TDD employment hotline for the Philadelphia Electric Company is 215-841-4806. Customers in the Conowingo Power Company service territory may access this line by calling 800-892-9061. The lines are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
 Only those with TDDs may access the TDD lines. All others should call the PECO job hotline at 215-841-4340.
 When a hearing impaired person calls the TDD employment hotline, a list of available job openings will scroll across the caller's TDD screen. Callers will then be instructed to leave their name and number. PECO's staffing division will contact all callers to verify information in order to mail necessary forms regarding the available positions. If there are no jobs available, the pre-programmed message will invite the caller to check back. The hotline is updated each Monday morning.
 TDDs are currently in use in PECO's customer service department to assist the hearing impaired with problems relating to their bills or electric and gas service.
 The TDD job hotline reflects PECO's commitment to fulfilling its customers' needs. Braille and large-print bills have been available to visually impaired customers since February, and an AT&T Language Line, which offers assistance in 140 languages, has been available for more than one year.
