HONOLULU – Hawai‘i Gas is working closely with emergency management officials statewide to prepare for Hurricane Douglas.
Hawai‘i Gas personnel across the state are closely monitoring the status of the hurricane and taking the appropriate measures to ensure continued gas service. Crews are topping-off gas supply at hospitals, first responders and other essential facilities to ensure their continued operations. Propane tank refilling stations for 20 lbs. BBQ grill cylinders are also being filled statewide.
Gas customers should not turn off their gas, as gas can provide a means of heating water and cooking food during a power outage. Hawai‘i Gas is advising that only customers who are directed by state or county emergency management officials to evacuate their premises should turn off their gas at the meter or tank. Customers must contact Hawai‘i Gas to turn on gas service after gas has been shut off.
