Our number one priority is the safety of our DC Gas employees, customers and residents in the communities we serve. Our company commitment is to work safely. We also are committed to educating customers and residents about how to safely use natural gas at home, in business and in the community.
We take our DC Gas employees’ safety seriously. We routinely provide employees with safety bulletins and also provide regular, specific safety training for working near or with natural gas pipelines. These safety bulletins and training sessions include tips and guidelines for avoiding accident or injury at work and at home.
Beyond our company employees, we provide contractors, city personnel, emergency responders and political officials annual updates on safe operating procedures near natural gas pipe lines. We have partnered with Alabama One Call (811) to educate them on the critical importance of notifying all utilities before any and all construction site work. We also train them in the protocol for reporting an incident should one of our gas lines be hit.
DC Gas is committed not only to your safety, but also the safety of those living in the communities we serve and all of our employees. Natural gas pipelines can be found everywhere. Every county in Alabama has some sort of pipeline, and there are hundreds of miles of underground lines in the DC Gas service area. While pipelines are the safest method to transport natural gas, we must work together to prevent their damage for the greatest safety. To prevent damage to underground pipelines, call 811 before you dig.
Together, let’s keep us all safe.
