Natural Gas Utility Workers' Day is March 18
The American Public Gas Association has designated March 18 as Natural Gas Utility Workers' Day, a time to recognize the employees who ensure that natural gas is distributed safely.
This annual nationwide event is intended to build public awareness about the hard work done by employees of natural gas utilities.
March 18 is the date of the New London, Texas, school explosion in 1937 that led to the widespread odorization of natural gas and an increased emphasis on safety.
Safety is a vital aspect of natural gas distribution, and Rock Energy Cooperative endeavors to make natural gas delivery as safe as possible. We look forward to continuing to bring safe, reliable natural gas to members' homes and businesses. For information about natural gas safety, check out the links below.
If you happen to see one of the co-op's natural gas employees out working in the next week or two, be sure to take a moment to say thanks for making sure our natural gas is distributed safely.
