Consumers Energy just released a new natural gas safety TV Public service announcement. It’s an effective video on natural gas safety. The video was produced by (and stars) Consumers Energy employees as they follow the 3 R’s (recognize, react, and report) when they suspect a leak.
Safety is the number one priority for all our members and that goes for their employees, the people who live in these communities. Here’s a quote from one of the people in the video:
“Safety is the most important message Consumers Energy delivers,” said Jim Whitford, a gas service supervisor in Pontiac, Mich. “My team responds to nearly 10,000 gas leaks a year. I’m proud to encourage our crews and the public to identify the gas leaks and respond. Using our own experienced employees is the right thing to do.”
They also feature the video on their website and YouTube, and have developed a handy brochure that hits their key safety points. The brochure and website both do a great job of giving short bullet points on what you should be doing as you recognize, react and report. The brochure also gives some other places you can go for natural gas safety information.
