Public Service Announcement – Important Winter Safety Measures

For immediate release

March 18, 2015

DARTMOUTH, NS – Heritage Gas is reminding contractors and its customers about important safety measures related to natural gas meters and equipment.

When natural gas meters and above ground equipment become snow-covered it is important for snow removal contractors and property managers to be aware of the location of natural gas meters and to be cautious when plowing driveways, sidewalks and parking lots.

If you are a customer of Heritage Gas, ensure that your natural gas meter is kept free of snow and ice buildup so that the meter continues to operate properly, and is accessible to the meter set. All appliance vents must be kept clear of snow and ice – without proper airflow, appliances can perform poorly or create hazardous situations.

If at any time you believe there is an issue related to natural gas, please contact Heritage Gas immediately at 1-866-313-3030.
