As part of our wintertime gas leak detection program, it's his job to track trouble down before it happens. With the highly-sensitive Back Pack, even the smallest amount of escaping gas is quickly detected, alerting us to make immediate repairs. During cold months, frost-hardened ground can prevent leaking gas from escaping into the air, making it difficult to detect. That's why we rely on Back Pack to check gas service entrances in public buildings, manholes and sewers, while special truck units check along streets and curbs. Our year-round detection program also calls for regular testing of high pressure mains and safety checks in homes during service calls to make sure gas is properly odorized. All calls concerning suspected gas leaks are treated as emergencies and investigated at once, day or night. If you suspect a gas leak... Please.call us at once...
