People’s Gas Introduces New “Ambassadog” for Safe Digging

(Lawndale News) – People’s Gas announced in August that “Oscar” has been elected the company’s “Ambassadog” for safe digging in the utility’s “Doggone It!” photo contest. Oscar won a fierce online battle with 10 of Chicago’s canine companions. Oscar will help educate community members about the importance of safe digging and to call 811 before you begin any digging projects to protect yourself and prevent damages to natural gas lines and other underground utilities.

People’s Gas has approximately 4,000 miles of underground pipelines for distribution and transportation of natural gas in the city of Chicago.
