The decision to hold this day on March 18 was made by a poll on the APGA Community. March 18 is the date of the New London, Texas school explosion in 1937 that led to the widespread odorization of natural gas and an increased emphasis on safety. Safety is a vital aspect to natural gas distribution and the employees of distribution companies endeavor to make natural gas delivery as safe as possible.
Please honor the natural gas utility workers in your community and at your system by celebrating on March 18. Natural gas utilities are encouraged to plan events, communication, social media posts, etc., to celebrate this very important day.
