CHILDERSBURG, Ala. – Childersburg Water Works, Sewer & Gas Board celebrates Natural Gas Public Awareness Month by inviting the public to its annual Public Awareness Day at its office today, Wednesday, October 5.

The fun-filled event educated people about the use of natural gas and its dangers. Hot dogs, drinks, and gift bags were free to the public.

“We have done this event for ten years all for our customers to understand what to do incase of a natural gas emergency,” said Michael Maddox, general manager of Childersburg Water Works, Sewer & Gas Board.
