Middle school students in Door and Kewaunee counties will be learning more about natural gas safety this month.
Wisconsin Public Service will be presenting 35-minute programs showing the properties of natural gas and how it's used to heat homes, heat water and cook food.
Programs are scheduled for Wednesday, February 13 at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran School in Algoma; Wednesday, February 20 at Gibraltar School (Grade 6); Friday, February 22 at Holy Rosary School in Kewaunee (Grade 6, 7 & 8) and Friday, February 22 at TJ Walker Middle School in Sturgeon Bay (Grade 8).
The four important safety messages WPS gas technicians will deliver are:
- Natural gas is safe if used properly
- Know and respect the dangers of carbon monoxide
- Natural gas appliances need to be checked annually by a professional
- If you smell natural gas, call WPS immediately
