Natural Gas Safety Education
Florence Utilities hosted a natural gas presentation at the Florence Elementary School. The presentation was given by two Wisconsin Public Service mechanics. During the presentation, the mechanics used natural gas in a number of demonstrations to illustrate the properties of this widely used heating fuel, the dangers of carbon monoxide, and how to react if a natural gas leak is detected. The students also received an appreciation of the history of natural gas and the long path it must travel from ground to end use. Every other year, Florence Utilities partners with Wisconsin Public Service to bring this important safety program to 6-8 graders in the Florence School District.
