Nicor Gas Partners with Local Fire Departments in 61 Northern Illinois Communities for Natural Gas Safety Program

September 18, 2014

NAPERVILLE, Ill. – Sept. 18, 2014 – In an effort to increase awareness about natural gas safety, Nicor Gas will take its natural gas safety program to fire stations in 61 communities across its northern Illinois service territory. The program, now in its ninth year and held in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week (October 5-11), will run through Oct. 30. The public will have the opportunity to learn important information that can help protect them and their families in the case of a fire.

“This program is an incredible learning opportunity for the communities we serve.” said Beth Reese, president, Nicor Gas. “By teaming up with local fire departments we are able to educate the public about natural gas safety and fire prevention. The safety of our customers and the general public is our number-one priority, and this program provides valuable learning tools that could save lives.”

Display tables featuring hands-on activities including an interactive safety video and game that teaches children about natural gas, its origin, use, and safety tips. Hands-on lessons include a Scratch ‘n Sniff activity that will help parents and children identify a possible gas leak. Nicor Gas volunteers will provide kid-friendly demonstrations and important tips and tools to ensure that families know what to do in the unlikely event of a natural gas emergency.
