Charles K. Vaughan Center

Investing in Our Employees

Atmos Energy employees learn and practice safety skills in a specially-built, mini community complete with buildings and a functioning gas distribution system beneath city streets. Trainees install actual meters, inspect and repair functioning underground pipelines, respond to emergency situations, and prepare for real-life scenarios. 


Staff trainees may also be in the gas-flow lab learning about the myriad types—and conditions—of pipe and equipment they could find in the field. Or, they might be attending a lecture or taking a test in an adjacent state-of-the-art classroom. 

These resources are all part of the Charles K. Vaughn Center, named after Atmos Energy’s visionary first chairman and CEO, Charles K. Vaughan. Like him, the center is a company-wide beacon for the highest standards of work quality, customer service and - most of all - safety.
