Natural gas, America’s most popular home heating energy, is increasingly popular for use by homeowners, schools, businesses, factories and power generation facilities because it is efficient, clean reliable and a relative bargain compared to alternative energy sources.
As with any energy source, certain levels of safety should always be practiced!
To protect you and others in our communities; federal and state government, along with your utility provider have made safety a high priority. Any time you excavate or move earth in any way, you are required to “Call Before You Dig” by simply dialing 811 at least 48 hours before beginning any and all digging. When you call Georgia 811, they will contact all utility owners who will locate and mark all buried utilities on or near your property, so you can safely dig and prevent a potentially hazardous situation. Failure to use the 811 system is a known contributor to pipeline incidents or accidents. Calling before you dig can prevent a costly or even deadly mistake.
If you smell gas, or just think you might smell gas, leave the area immediately and call your gas provider from a nearby location, a safe distance from where the smell was detected. Never turn on or off switches or use a portable light or phone in the presence of a possible gas smell, because an electric spark could ignite gas and cause an explosion.
Customers served by Mid-State Energy Commission may report the unusual smell of natural gas, regardless of the time or day, to our business telephone number 478.654.6059.
During non-business hours all calls are routed through the local 911 Emergency Center.
