Nicor Gas, Local Fire Departments Kickoff 2016 Natural Gas Safety Program

NAPERVILLE, Ill. – Sept. 8, 2016 – With a focus on increased awareness about natural gas and general home safety, Nicor Gas is taking its natural gas safety program to fire stations in 55 communities across its northern Illinois service territory. The program, now in its 11th year and held in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 9-15), will run through the end of October. The public will have the opportunity to learn important information that can help protect them and their families in the case of an emergency.  
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. Display tables featuring hands-on activities will engage children about natural gas, its origin, use, and safety tips. Participants can learn about the Nicor Gas energySMART program, as well as energy assistance programs.  

To learn more about natural gas safety, visit www.nicorgas.com/Safety. Children also can visit the kids’ natural gas safety page at www.nicorgas.com/Sniffy.
