Natural Gas Safety

  • Natural Gas...
    safe and reliable when treated with respect

Natural gas is one of the safest and most reliable fuels available. Natural gas is lighter than air and will dissipate into the atmosphere unless confined. It has a higher combustion temperature than other fuels. Combustion cannot occur unless a narrow range of fuel-to-air mixture is present.

Like all energy forms, it must be used properly. For safe, efficient use of natural gas in your home, it is important that you respect natural gas, know how to use it properly and follow manufacturer’s directions for using and taking care of natural gas appliances. By properly caring for your appliances, you'll help ensure safe and effective operation.

Call before you dig to ensure your safety and the safety of everyone around you by having your natural gas line located.
