Natural Gas Pipeline Safety

Natural Gas Pipeline Safety:

Keeping our communities safe and informed and what you need to know!

PSE&G 811 Know what’s below. Call before you dig.

Our Commitment to Safety:

Safety is the natural gas industry’s top priority. Nationwide, more than 2 million miles of pipelines and mains deliver natural gas safety, reliably and efficiently every day for use by residential, commercial and industrial customers. The industry spends more than $6 billion each year to maintain the gas system’s excellent safety record. We will continue to invest in programs that allow for the safe and secure delivery of natural gas and to work closely with industry and government on  a variety of important measures, including:

*Coordination with local One Call Centers

*Visual inspection programs

*Design and construction techniques

*System maintenance, replacement and upgrades

*Workforce training

*Industry safety practices and government oversight

*Pipeline markers and facility mapping

*Public education programs

We also work with emergency responders, state and local agencies  to prevent and prepare for emergencies through training and periodic drills. Emergency plans and procedures are periodically updated and made available to federal and state authorities.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
