Keep those gas meters clear of snow
It's time to at least exhale after last week's snowfall in the West Kootenay/Boundary region.
Now that there's been a reprieve of winter weather, FortisBC would like to remind customers to keep their natural gas meter and outside vents clear of ice and snow.
"Clear a path to your meter whenever you shovel your driveway to make sure it can be accessed safely by you, a meter reader or emergency responders," said FortisBC Amy Bunton Corporate Communications Advisor in a media release.
Here are some tips of what to do:
- Remove any built-up snow by hand
- Never kick or hit the meter to break ice or snow build-up
- Don’t use a snowplow or blower near your meter
- When shoveling snow, don’t push the snow up against your meter
- If ice builds up on your meter or regulator, call FortisBC at 1-888-224-2710
