Lake Apopka Natural Gas District will observe the National Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day on March 18, 2017. Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day is a time when communities, such as ours, give recognition to the employees who provide one of their most valuable assets, their natural gas utility. Henceforth, we will continue to celebrate March 18th each year. While March 18th is the official day, the District will honor our workers the entire week leading up to this date.
March 18th is the date of the New London, Texas school explosion in 1937 that led to the widespread odorization of natural gas and an increased emphasis on safety. Safety is a vital aspect of natural gas distribution and the employees of distribution companies endeavor to make natural gas delivery as safe as possible.
This annual nationwide event is intended to build public awareness about the hard work done by the employees of natural gas utilities. We will also educate residents on the environmental, safety and cost benefits of using clean, reliable and affordable natural gas. Our customers recognize the need to access reliable, affordable, safe energy and depend on the service of the natural gas utility employees for that need. Lake Apopka Natural Gas District utility workers have been awarded many safety awards over the past few years. Our latest accomplishment was receiving the American Public Gas Association’s coveted national S.O.A.R. (Systems Operational Achievement Recognition) Award for the second year in a row.
Lake Apopka Natural Gas District looks forward to continuing to bring safe, reliable natural gas into your homes and businesses. We also hope you will join us in supporting natural gas as a premier energy source for our country. As the cleanest burning fossil fuel, natural gas can help us achieve energy security and build a more competitive economy.
