Safety Tips!


Safety is always Dooley's Natural Gas' main priority.  If you think you can smell gas leaking around your meter give our office a call and we will have a technician come to your home.  If you can smell gas inside your home leave the area and call our office from a safe location.  There is no charge for a leak investigation.                    


Gas Meter Safety

Make sure that the area around your gas meter is kept free of debris, snow, ice and obstructions at all time.  Please notify us if you have ice build-up on your gas meter.  DO NOT attempt to knock the ice off with a shovel or other equipment by yourself.  Dooley's Natural Gas will assign a team member to investigate any report of a gas leak free of charge. 


Pipeline Safety

Pipelines are the most common method to transport natural gas.  To assure safe, efficient delivery of natural gas to your home, business or factory, natural gas companies must continuously monitor their pipeline systems.  Dooley's Natural Gas is a proud member of the Minnesota Pipeline CAER Association with promotes pipeline safety.


Appliance & Equipment Safety

The most common natural gas appliances include a furnace, water heater, gas fireplace & range.  We recommend that appliances are installed by a licensed professional.  Always keep vents, chimneys and air openings on appliances unobstructed.  We also recommend installing carbon monoxide detectors that can also dectect gas.  These detectors should be installed in or near bedrooms on each level of your home.
