Preparing yourself at home

Natural gas installations

To ensure the safe and efficient operation of your natural gas appliances, it is important that you carefully clear the air intakes, exhaust pipes, and your meter. Clear regularly, and especially when there is a heavy accumulation of snow.

If your meter becomes covered in ice, call Gazifère Customer Service promptly at 819-771-8321.

Tips from your distributors of natural gas

Fire hydrants

Snow removal from fire hydrants is the responsibility of the City. However, to ensure maximum protection of your assets, we ask that you clear the snow from around any fire hydrants on your property in order to make them fully usable in case of a fire. Be sure to provide a 1.5 m clearance around each hydrant. Remember that it is prohibited to push snow up against a fire hydrant. Violators are subject to a fine under by-law no. 774-2015.
