Promoting Natural Gas Safety & Protecting Communities
A Note From Our COO, Ron Lazarus
Natural gas explosions occur every two days in US homes, businesses, and communities. This is not just a domestic problem, but a global one. Our team has been working diligently to share natural gas safety information to the public, utilities, fire services, and legislatures. Thankfully, some legislatures are beginning to listen.
In 2022, the state of Maine enacted legislation requiring natural gas alarms in multifamily homes, dormitories, hotels, motels, etc. Legislation is currently in progress in other states as well.
Most recently, I testified in front of the Tennessee State House of Representatives along with Senator London Lamar in support of Bill HB1831 (the “Fuel Gas Detector Act”), encouraging passage of this bill and informing the House of the availability and rationale for natural gas alarms and how truly vital they are to saving lives.
Many people know how important it is to install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in their homes, yet natural gas and the danger it poses is usually not top-of-mind.
With the launch of our newest "National Natural Gas Safety Awareness" campaign, New Cosmos USA, Inc. aims to educate residents about this crucial issue and share how they can protect themselves, their families, and their neighbors.
I hope you enjoy our first newsletter and we look forward to continuing to keep you informed.
