 Carbon Monoxide Safety

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas that is colorless, odorless and tasteless. CO can be produced by any fuel-burning appliance in your home, so it’s important to have your appliances checked annually by a qualified technician, especially before the start of the heating season. To learn more about the dangers of CO, symptoms of CO poisoning and ways to prevent CO buildup in your home, click here.

 Call Before You Dig

Call before you dig


Whether you’re working on a large excavation or simply planting a tree in your yard, natural gas and utility line safety should always be job one—and that starts with calling 8-1-1 to have your utility lines marked. By doing so, you can be certain where your electric, gas, water and other important lines are located as well as avoid causing serious injuries, service interruptions or possibly costly fines for damaged infrastructure. Make the call. It’s easy, and free. Click here for more information.
