Enbridge Gas Distribution's New Campaign Provides Natural Gas Safety Tips in Just Six Seconds

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 16, 2013) - Enbridge Gas Distribution today announced the launch of SixSecondSafety.com, a new website and public awareness campaign designed to get customers thinking about natural gas safety in and around their homes.

The mobile-friendly website hosts a series of 20 interactive videos that allow users to click on topics, such as why you need to call before you dig or why you should keep your meter free of snow and ice, and allows users to share safety tips through Twitter and Facebook. Each safety tip is just six seconds long.

"Natural gas safety may not be top-of-mind for many customers, but it's something we take very seriously," said Jamie Milner, Vice President, Market Development & Customer Care, Enbridge Gas Distribution. "We invest in the safety of our system, and through public awareness campaigns, like Six Second Safety, we help customers understand safety too. We hope our customers watch all of our six-second safety videos and share them with family and friends."

Natural gas is a safe and reliable fuel source but, just as a car requires regular maintenance, natural gas appliances must also be treated well and properly maintained.

Residents and their family members can learn more by visiting SixSecondSafety.com for 20 simple but important safety tips, each just six seconds long. To learn more, visit SixSecondSafety.com.
