Natural Gas Utility Workers Day set for March 18

Natural Gas Utility Worker's Day will be celebrated March 18.

In 2015, the American Public Gas Association Marketing & Sales Committee began discussing how they believed natural gas utility workers deserved a day to be recognized for their hard work and accomplishments.

After months of planning, the committee named March 18 the day on which natural gas utility workers around the country will be honored each year. March 18 is the date of the New London, Texas school incident in 1937 that led to the widespread odorization of natural gas and an increased emphasis on safety.

Safety is a vital aspect of 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 communities and organizations by celebrating on March 18.
