Our safety culture extends beyond our buildings and into our communities. In 2020, we conducted nearly 520 public safety trainings to first responders and excavators. We work each day to help our customers and communities learn how to stay safe around overhead and underground electric and natural gas lines.
Public safety training
Despite the challenges of COVID, we hosted emergency response and public awareness trainings for almost 520 first responders and excavators serving our communities.
811 - Call Before You Dig
We actively promote 811 - Call Before You Dig - to build awareness about this essential underground utility-marking service.
Pipeline awareness and outreach
We provide pipeline safety information to the public, emergency responders, excavators, and public officials to inform them about safe digging and recognizing pipeline emergencies in and around pipelines, compressor stations, LNG facilities and underground storage facilities. Various media messaging methods are used such as mailing of brochures, bill stuffers, email campaigns, online training website and participation in a variety of industry trade groups.
Power line safety
We provide information to our customers, community and the general public to help them stay safe around power line.
Pipeline integrity management
We have a comprehensive pipeline integrity management plan to anticipate, proactively monitor, and assess risks to the integrity of our natural gas pipelines through continuous inspections and testing.
To support the reliability of our electric distribution and transmission system, we perform tree trimming and integrated vegetation management activities to manage power lines’ rights-of-way.
