Tips on Recognizing Employees of The Natural Gas Company
Don’t Open the Door Unless You’re Sure!
Meter Readers. Service Technicians. Bill Collectors. These are just a few of the natural gas company employees who regularly visit your neighborhood. Unfortunately, because our employees are a trusted and common sight in many Paris and Henry County areas, criminals may sometimes pose as natural gas company workers in order to enter your home.
Here are some tips to help you recognize natural gas company employees:
- Does the person have identification?
Tip: Every natural gas company employee on company business is required to carry a photo ID badge.
- Does the worker have on a natural gas company uniform with our company logo?
Tip: While most gas company workers wear uniforms, some do not. Always ask for identification before allowing someone into your home.
- Have I or someone else in my home made an appointment for service from The Natural Gas Company?
Tip: Most of the time a natural gas company person visits in response to a service request. If no one in your household scheduled an appointment, call The Natural Gas Company at 642-5635 before allowing the employee into your home.
- Do natural gas company employees ever stop by without an appointment?
Tip: Yes. But whether they are a meter reader, collector, inspector or gas service technician our employees always carry identification.
