Mobile Gas to observe Natural Gas Utility Workers’ DayPosted March 17, 2016
Mobile Gas will observe Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day on March 18th. This is the first year for the national observance and will become an annual celebration for natural gas utilities across the country.
Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day is a time when we would like to give recognition to all employees who work hard every day to make sure we deliver the most clean, reliable, affordable, and safe product to thousands of residential, commercial and industrial customers in the greater Mobile area and surrounding communities.
March 18th is also 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 to natural gas distribution and the employees of distribution companies endeavor to make natural gas delivery as safe as possible. Mobile Gas looks forward to continuing to bring safe, reliable natural gas into homes and businesses.
