Because parts of your area have reported power outages, Atmos Energy, the natural gas company in your area, is reminding its customers of the following information:

- If you suspect a natural gas leak in your home or outside, call our 24 hour emergency toll free number 1-866-322-8667 or 911. - For all other service calls, call our toll free number, 1-888-286-6700. - Forced air furnaces or central heating furnaces require electricity to operate the blowers and electronic ignition. The appliance should return to the normal operations once the power is restored. - Appliances such as space heaters, water heaters, gas grills and gas ranges should continue to work.  However, please note, gas ranges and gas grills may need to be lit manually.  If you need assistance with that, please contact a local appliance service contractor.   - Please be aware of the carbon monoxide that may be produced if a gas appliance is operating improperly.  Carbon monoxide, or CO, is a poisonous, colorless and deadly gas.  Ranges, ovens or grills should not be used as heating source for inside your home.   Safety is our number one concern.  Please contact us immediately in the event of an emergency situation.
