“It was a great event engaging with over 5,000 students on natural gas pipeline safety and the importance of safe digging” said Lee Westerlind, Manager Natural Gas Pipeline Safety.

In addition to sponsoring this event, each student received a copy of our Energy Explorer gas safety themed booklet, “Natural Gas: Your Invisible Friend.”
