Carbon Monoxide Awareness: The best line of defense against carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is to have a working CO detector on every floor of your home. It is important to regularly test your CO detector and to change the batteries often. To prevent carbon monoxide in your home, Get your fuel-burning appliances (i.e. furnace, hot water heater, fireplace, natural gas range, etc.) checked by a qualified technician regularly according to manufacturers’ specifications and check and replace your furnace filter monthly. You should also check the flame of all natural gas appliances regularly (it should be blue – a yellow burner flame can be a sign of carbon monoxide). More details can be found at

RNG as a Clean and Affordable Vehicle Fuel Option: Vehicles fueled by natural gas can also use renewable natural gas (RNG). RNG fuel is 100 per cent renewable and can offer additional environment benefits. Like natural gas, RNG can be converted to compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas.

Facts About Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

  • LNG is simply natural gas in a liquid state.
  • As a fuel, LNG can help reduce emissions.
  • LNG helps remote communities reduce their reliance on diesel and propane.
  • LNG is odorless, non-toxic and non-corrosive.
  • When exposed to the environment, LNG rapidly evaporates, leaving no residue on water or soil.
  • If spilled, 100 per cent of the LNG evaporates, leaving no residue behind.
