As the weather turns colder, the City of Long Beach reminds residents to be safe when heating their homes, and to avoid unnecessary risks that can lead to carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and possibly death.
Odorless and colorless, CO gas is produced from heaters, fireplaces, furnaces and many types of appliances and cooking devices, especially when they are malfunctioning or improperly used.
On Monday, October 4, 2010 at Veterans Park, the Wrigley Association will host Christopher Garner, the Director of the Long Beach Gas & Oil Department and Michelle Quigley, Chief Operations Officer for the Long Beach animal care Services.
On Thursday September 9, 2010, a major natural gas pipeline exploded in a residential area of San Bruno, California. The latest information indicates that at least 6 people were killed, over 100 people injured, and as many as 53 homes destroyed.

As early as next week, Long Beach Gas and Water customers will begin benefitting from the City’s switch to a monthly meter reading schedule. For the past few months Corix Utilities, the company tasked with providing the new monthly meter reading service for the City of Long Beach, has been operating a pilot meter reading program in different areas of the City.
Earlier today, Long Beach Gas and Oil Department and Long Beach Water Department staff responded to a report of water leaking from a gas service line. This was verified at several locations. For the safety of Long Beach residents, gas service was shut off at approximately 1:00 pm, impacting an estimated 222 customers.
