City Of Burrton Gas Customers

 

 

Safety Notice
Purpose

The purpose of the City of Burrton Gas System is to provide natural gas to its customers as safely as possible.  The Cities Gas System has been very reliable with no major gas leaks.  Gas pipelines are the safest method to transport natural gas.

Hazards Natural gas is odorless in its raw form, so the chemical Mercaptan is added to the gas so that it can be detected by smell.  There are four hazards associated with natural gas:

Fire

Flammability

Asphyxiation & Suffocation

Pressure

Smoke or Strike a Match

Turn on Lights

Operate any Electrical Switches or Appliance Controls

BUT DO:

Get Everyone Out of the Building Immediately
