Natural gas pipelines are everywhere. There is some form of pipeline in every county in Alabama, and hundreds of miles of underground lines in the SEAGD service area. Pipelines are the safest means of transporting natural gas, but only if we all do our part to prevent their damage. To prevent damage to underground pipelines, and to keep us all safe, please call 811 before you dig.
The safety of our employees, customers and residents in the communities we serve is a priority at SEAGD. We are committed to working safely and informing the public about how to safely utilize natural gas in their homes, businesses and throughout their communities.
SEAGD employees receive safety bulletins and specific safety training on a consistent basis to assist them not only in working safely around natural gas, but also to become more aware of general tips and guidelines for avoiding accident or injury at work or at home.
Contractors, city personnel, emergency responders and political officials receive annual updates on how to operate safely around natural gas pipelines. SEAGD educates these groups in cooperation with Alabama One Call to emphasize the importance of notifying all utilities prior to any construction site work, as well as the protocol for reporting an incident area in the event one of SEAGD’s lines are hit.
SEAGD is committed not only to your safety, but also to the safety of those living in all of the communities we serve and the safety of our employees.
