NW: New Information Provider

The following was received from the Uplawmoor Neighbourhood Watch.

We are delighted to announce that we have a new Information Provider in your area.

SGN manage the network which distributes gas to over 5 million homes and businesses across Scotland and the South of England, including where you live. They provide the National Gas Emergency response service (“Smell gas?” response service) to their pipe network and sometimes have to respond quickly when safety is at stake, which may mean performing street works at very short notice. Their primary objective is to help keep you and the local community safe. Therefore it follows that the messages SGN will be sending out on Alert will be advisory and extremely useful to Alert users ***very importantly, SGN will NOT be sending any advertising messages at all.***

SGN don’t maintain your meter or send bills for the gas you use in your property, that is your gas supplier’s responsibility. When repairs are needed or pipes need to be upgraded SGN dig up the roads or footpaths. If you like, you can find out more about SGN on their website: http://www.sgn.co.uk

SGN have joined the Alert system to provide real time information to you in emergencies; these messages could be about evacuations, roadworks, service interruptions and advice after floods etc. We anticipate that this vital information will help keep you safe and avoid large traffic jams!

Remember it is free to sign up to the Neighbourhood Watch.
