Questar Gas took the lead on Tuesday during Duchesne County’s Local Emergency Planning Committee(or LEPC) meeting. On a monthly basis, local county and business leaders meet in training for and collaborating during potential emergencies. Questar’s presentation was on pipeline safety and stressed proper procedures to follow around gas pipelines. The tips for the emergency planning leaders are much the same for the public. Always call 811 before you dig to “know what’s below.” Questar’s 23,000 miles of lines are part of a 1.5 million mile national underground pipeline network. The other safety practice all should know is anytime you smell natural gas, you should call 1-800-767-1689, an emergency service available 24-hours a day.
