im so sorry to hear of this sad and horrible news,in saying that i have a boyfriend whom has been employed with the city of vienna ga, going on ten yrs. he is a gas operator/worker aswell, i feel this is very dangerous work. i also think that measures should and could be taken to keep these men safer when sending them to repair or / CUT GAS lines that are alive with lbs of preasure on them. i know these guys take classes and do alot of certification for the job but thats not keeping them safe enough. lack of city funds results in cutting corners which puts the workers in danger, at times. like not wanting to turn gas lines off because of local businesses or homes in fear of the hassle of having to relight pilots and so on ect.....but theres never to great of cost or to much work if it means saving a life or in this case LOOSING one, my empathy and sympathy goes out to this family of the lost and injured,,,,i live with this fear everyday too! godbless you.

Employee ignorance, lack of concern/negligence of those in charge, and the failing infrastructure in America due to politicians that spend money on welfare/social programs and other pet projects are causing the death and pain of our people. People that are on social programs vote, people killed because of failed infrastructure don't.

Not many people know but that line coming from the street to your meter is a HIGH PRESSURE LINE. It only becomes low pressure after going thru the regulator (big round thing) next to the meter. Gas is nothing to fool around with.
