Gas safety

Natural gas makes our lives more comfortable and efficient, and natural gas is environmentally friendly. We use natural gas to heat our homes, produce hot water, cook our meals and dry our clothes. Natural gas is a wonderful energy source, but it can be hazardous if you are unfamiliar with how to use it safely.
