NEW JERSEY – Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) has a new manager of Emergency Preparedness, a role that acts as a liaison between federal, state and local emergency preparedness organizations.

Kimberly S. Contos, a graduate of Ramapo College of New Jersey who joined the company in 2007 as a supervisor of customer accounting, will take on the role and oversee JCP&L’s preparedness initiatives, helping to ensure a prompt and effective response to emergency events, including weather-related damage.

Contos transitioned to the human resources department in 2011 and became distribution technical supervisor for JCP&L transmission construction and maintenance in 2012.

“Kim has served as a team leader during JCP&L storm events and is an experienced supervisor with a background in managing regulatory and reliability commitments,” said Mark Jones, Vice President of Operations for JCP&L. “Her abilities in storm response, planning, management, and relationship building will strengthen our emergency preparedness organization.”
