Natural Gas Utility Workers' Day
Jo-Carroll Energy will observe the national Natural Gas Utility Workers' Day on March 18. This is the third year in which the day has been officially celebrated across the country, and is a time when we give recognition to employees who provide the service.
The official Gas Utility Workers' Day is March 18 because that is the date of the New London, Texas school explosion in 1937 that led to the widespread odorization of natural gas and an increased emphasis on safety. Safety is a vital aspect to natural gas distribution and the employees of distribution companies endeavor to make natural gas delivery as safe as possible.
We are dedicating the day to celebrate the hard work of the cooperative's natural gas team and their accomplishments in our community.
