    Atmos Energy’s Video “Gus the Gopher for Call 811” Wins American Gas Association SAVE Award

    DALLAS  –  The American Gas Association awarded Atmos Energy with the top video in the AGA Safety Awareness Video Excellence (SAVE) Awards’ external category.

    Atmos Energy’s submission, “Gus the Gopher for Call 811” was selected by a public vote and review by an outside award committee.

    Gus the Gopher serves as a safety mascot for Atmos Energy, reminding the public to call 811 prior to digging to ensure underground utilities are marked. By calling 811, homeowners and contractors are connected to their local one-call center, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig.  Professional locators are then sent to the digging site to mark the locations of underground utility-owned lines with flags and spray paint, free of charge.

    “We want to thank those who voted for this video to help spread Gus the Gopher’s safety message of calling 811,” said John McDill, Atmos Energy vice president of pipeline safety. “The 811 program is provided at no charge, and it can save you time and money, as well as prevent threats to life and property.”

    The most common causes of outside natural gas leaks are digging or construction that disturbs natural gas pipelines. Even minor damage can weaken a pipeline and lead to a future leak. 

    If a natural gas pipeline is nicked, scraped or dented, Atmos Energy reminds you to call 911 and then Atmos Energy’s emergency number at 866.322.8667 for pipeline inspection and repair.

    It’s been a year since Crew Foreman Justin Anders’ wife, Meagan, gave birth to quadruplets: two girls and two boys. They are now sleeping all night, which has been a blessing.

    “It was tough early on,” Justin says. “I would get up and help my wife when we needed to feed them. Next thing I knew, the alarm was ringing and it was time to go to work. We are happy that the babies are sleeping through the night. We are getting more rest now.”

    Meagan takes care of the kids while Justin is on the job. After work, he takes over. Meagan goes to the grocery store in Abilene, 20 minutes north of Tuscola. If they have to go to the doctor, Justin takes off work and the six of them travel in the family van, which has four infant seats.

    “I have been so appreciative of the company,” he said. “Employees did a baby shower for us in the Abilene office. We got plenty of bottles and diapers and lots of clothes. And while my wife was in the hospital in Fort Worth for nearly three months before she gave birth, I worked at the Morningside Service Center. Atmos Energy provided room and board in a motel for me. This company is such a blessing.”

    “Atmos Energy cares about its employees and their families,” said Operations Vice President Rad Cook. “We are glad to help the Anders family.”

    A unique online tutoring program pairs 18 Mississippi Division employees with first-grade students at Clausell Elementary for tutoring sessions once a week throughout the school year. Tutors sign up for a specific day and time to spend 30 minutes per week with their assigned student.

    “At my designated time, 9 a.m. every Tuesday, from my office in Flowood, I call the teacher’s classroom,” said Director of Public Affairs Robert Lesley, who has worked with first-grader Devon since September.

    “The teacher answers and puts headphones on Devon. He sits in front of a laptop and I am at my computer. During the session, we read stories together and play games that build comprehension and word knowledge.”

    Working with the same student all year builds a positive, trusting environment between the employee and the child,” says Manager of Public Affairs Linda Waters.

    “Teachers and parents have told us this program had made a real difference in the student’s reading ability and their attitude about school.”

    Employees have participated in the TutorMate online literacy program since 2015, the year the program was introduced in the Jackson Public School District.

The day-one rest stop for more than 1,800 cyclists was hosted by the Denton Service Center at an elementary school.
