Natural Gas: The heartwarming choice

LANGD giving away 400 smoke and carbon monoxide detectors


Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to spoil the people you love most in your life. From delicious candies and cakes to thoughtful gifts and flowers, people across the world go above and beyond on the day of love to show their partners, families, and even friends how much they care about them. 

At Lake Apopka Natural Gas District (LANGD), they prioritize spreading love to their customers year-round through various educational initiatives about the latest trends in the natural gas industry. And, this Valentine’s Day, they are taking a proactive approach to remind residents in their member cities – specifically in Apopka and Clermont – about the love and safety of natural gas. 

Making the switch to natural gas comes with many benefits – cost savings, abundance, reliability, and more – but it’s important to remember that, to enjoy those perks, you must follow some important best practices to keep your homes and business safe.  

If your home is fueled by natural gas, one of the easiest ways you can ensure you and your loved ones are taken care of is by installing and regularly monitoring smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. According to the National Fire Protection Association, the risk of dying in a fire is 55% lower in homes with working alarms. 

To continue spreading the love of the safety of natural gas, this Valentine’s Day, LANGD is donating nearly 400 smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to local fire departments in Apopka and Clermont. The fire departments will then install the detectors in homes in need of this type of technology to keep local citizens safe.  

LANGD’s Administrator of Regulatory & Safety Compliance, Terrill Booker, will lead this effort and will also give a presentation to each fire department about smoke and carbon monoxide safety, specifically in homes and buildings with natural gas. In addition to the role Terrill plays on the LANGD team to keep customers safe, he is also an active member of the Florida 811 Board and advocates for safe digging across the state.  

LANGD’s love and commitment to natural gas safety extend far beyond February, too. For 10 consecutive years, the District has earned the American Public Gas Association’s (APGA) Safety Award.  In addition, to continue being in satisfactory compliance with state and federal natural gas pipeline safety rules by the Florida Public Service Commission, LANGD has managed to receive no violations at all for the last five consecutive years. When they say safety is their top priority … they mean it!

LANGD wants to know: "Are you ready to make the switch to natural gas and be ours this Valentine’s Day?"
