    City officials, business leaders (including several Atmos Energy employees), school and park representatives, and citizens helped break ground on a 10-acre special needs playground called PlayGrand Adventures. The facility will be one of the largest playgrounds in the country.

    The playground is envisioned to be an all-inclusive site offering physical activities and social interaction for
    children of all abilities. Atmos Energy contributed $30,000 toward construction.

    “This playground will offer ‘therapeutic recreation’ which considers the physical, sensory and
    social needs of children, providing a great experience not only for the kids but for the parents and grandparents who bring them to the park,” says Manager of Communications Celina Cardenas.

    “I am so happy Atmos Energy was able to support this important project.”

    Many have heard the saying, “dogs are a man’s best friend.” To wounded or disabled veterans, dogs are more than companions. They represent an avenue to assimilate back into society after returning home. To support the cause of providing veterans with service dogs, Atmos Energy’s Mid-Tex Sales and Public Affairs team donated more than $1,000 to Patriot PAWS.

    Patriot PAWS is an organization that trains and provides service dogs at no cost to disabled American veterans and others with mobile disabilities and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Each dog undergoes extensive training for two and half years before being matched with a veteran.

    Prior to the donation presentation, employees got to meet Payton, a young chocolate Labrador retriever, when presenting the donation. They were able to watch a demonstration of his skills and were in awe of his discipline and gentle nature.

    “We got to see first-hand the work that goes into training these dogs for our veterans,” said Randy Beard, account manager for Atmos Energy and donation organizer. “It’s an honor to support an organization like this. Our employees donated these funds out of their own pockets. I feel that says a lot about our employees’ hearts for others.”

    Operations Supervisor Brad Evans has run a half marathon (13.1) miles in 40 states and plans on doing one in all 50 states. His first race was in Nashville in 2008. The 40th was five months ago in Utah. The toughest was New Year’s Day 2013 in Minneapolis. 

    “It was -4 and you couldn’t keep your water bottle from freezing. My eyelids would try to freeze shut,” says Evans, who lives in Southaven, Miss. 

    Ironically, he rarely even walked for exercise until he had a physical in 2007. “It was not what I had hoped for. My wife was a runner, so I decided to give it a try. At first, I couldn’t make it three driveways without walking.”

    He extended his stamina and soon began running 5Ks (three miles) with the pastor at his church. They ran several races in Mississippi, Kentucky and Arkansas, and thought it would be fun to run in other states. While doing a half marathon in Louisville, Ky., they met a man who had run in all 50 states, twice.

    Know the signs of a scam to protect your information

     

    DALLAS (Nov. 14, 2018) – Atmos Energy, a member of Utilities United Against Scams (UUAS), is joining forces with natural gas and electric utility companies across the United States and Canada to inform customers how to protect themselves from impostor utility scams.

    The third annual Utility Scam Awareness Day is today, Wednesday, Nov. 14. It is supported by an advocacy and awareness campaign focused on exposing the tactics of scammers, such as employee impostors, email and telephone scams.

    Employee Impostor Scams

    • Always ask for an employee’s identification badge, which displays his or her name, photograph, and the Atmos Energy logo.
    • If you suspect an impostor, immediately call Atmos Energy’s customer service at 888.286.6700 to verify the employee's identity and contact local authorities, if necessary.
    • Beware of impostors demanding payment at your door. Atmos Energy employees will not collect payments in person.

    Email Scams

    • Beware of bogus emails requesting immediate payment of your bill, particularly those demanding prepaid debit cards.
    • Verify your account number is listed correctly.
    • Do not click on any links in the suspicious email. Your computer may be exposed to viruses.
    • Verify your account balance through Atmos Energy’s online Account Center.

    Telephone Scams

    • Telephone scams are also on the rise, where people pose as utility employees and demand immediate payment of past due balances.
    • If you ever have concerns about the legitimacy of a call, please hang up and call Atmos Energy’s customer service at 888.286.6700. 

     Atmos Energy will never send a notification one hour or less before disconnection.  Customers with delinquent accounts receive an advance disconnection notification by mail. If someone threatens immediate disconnection or shutoff of service, customers should contact authorities.

    If you are an Atmos Energy customer and suspect you are a victim of a scam, please contact our customer contact center at 888.286.6700.

    Story Courtesy of: City of Mesquite

    Atmos Energy stepped forward to pledge $100,000 towards the Mesquite Veterans Memorial project. The community launched a campaign last year to build a new veterans memorial in Mesquite.

    Oric Walker, Vice President of Public Affairs, of the Mid-Tex Division for Atmos Energy made the announcement of the donation during a special ceremony at City Lake Park. The memorial will be located at the park area, with preliminary designs set for 2019.

    Mayor Stan Pickett said, “Today’s announcement by Atmos Energy is tremendous. This is a legacy project, and it could not happen without Atmos Energy. The military veterans and their families here in our community will be forever grateful.” Pickett stated the fundraiser efforts will continue into next year.

    The public may send a tax-deductible donation to Mesquite Veterans Memorial, c/o Historic Mesquite, Inc., P.O. Box 850137, Mesquite, TX 75185-0137. Donations may also be made online at www.mesquiteveteransmemorial.org.
