Safety at Home
Natural gas is a naturally abundant gas found deep beneath the earth’s surface. It is odorless and colorless. It is also considered the cleanest fossil fuel because it produces fewer emissions than other fossil fuels.
When used properly, natural gas is one of the safest and most reliable forms of energy available. However, as with all forms of energy, improper or careless use of natural gas may cause property damage, personal injury or even death.
At Alagasco, we are committed to delivering natural gas to our customers in the safest manner possible. But you, the customer, must realize that it is your responsibility to properly maintain and safely operate natural gas appliances.
We encourage you to take the time right now to read this section thoroughly. We also advise you to consult the manufacturer’s instructions and warnings that are included with your natural gas appliances for more detailed safety information.
