The Crises That Can Be Created By Natural Gas Leaks

Bob Ackley is a nationally known gas safety expert and president of Gas Safety Inc. In this episode, he discusses the natural gas leaks and explosions that can create a crisis for companies and communities.

It’s better to Ask the gas company for safety checks to ensure the safety of gas pipes, and if they don’t provide satisfactory answers, contact the Department of Public Utilities. – Bob
Gas companies have a duty to educate their customers on gas leak recognition and response. Natural gas is odorless, but companies add a rotten egg smell. Signs of gas leaks include dead vegetation, unusual noise, white cloud or mist, and bubbles in standing water. If you notice any of these signs, call the gas company immediately. – Bob
“Public education is key in preventing natural gas leak crisis. We must be vigilant and report gas leaks immediately to avoid serious consequences.” – Bob
