The National Weather Service issued blizzard and winter storm warnings for parts of Nebraska. The weather is making travel difficult for our crews responding to flooding issues in the area. We want to remind you about important natural gas safety information.
Natural gas safety during storms
Snow and ice buildup on your natural gas meter can create a safety hazard and even cut off the flow of natural gas to your heating equipment and appliances. To avoid trouble, gently remove snow and ice from on and around the meter with your hands or a broom.
Gas meters and regulators are durable and designed with the weather in mind, but a coating of ice or snow could cause a loss of service and become a critical safety issue. If at all possible, remove the snow before it has a chance to freeze.
Watch the video below for more information about how to keep your meter clear and safe.
