Natural gas service for customers impacted by a natural disaster

Saddleridge

Last updated 10/12/2019 as of 7:00 a.m.

 
SoCalGas has been actively monitoring the Saddleridge and other fires affecting customers in our service territory. SoCalGas field representatives are deployed and assisting firefighters in support of public safety.

In areas where gas is turned off as a precaution, SoCalGas crews will begin restoring service as soon as first responders determine it is safe to do so.  For safety reasons, customers should not attempt to restore gas service themselves. Only a SoCalGas technician or certified contractors are authorized to operate the natural gas service shut-off valve.

We urge customers to continue to report suspected gas leaks by calling 1-800-427-2200 or 911 after evacuating the immediate area.

 

Saddleridge Fire and Aliso Canyon Facility

  • LA Fire and LA County Fire personnel remain on scene at Aliso Canyon.
  • SoCalGas crews conducted an overnight assessment of the facility. At this time, there is no indication of damage to the company’s natural gas infrastructure. In addition, there are no reports of leaks at the facility.
  • SoCalGas maintains a brush clearing program around our facilities to minimize the chances of a brush fire affecting storage wellheads.
  • We do not anticipate any damage to our storage wellheads due to the fire.
  • We stand ready to quickly and safely restore service to homes directly affected by the fires as soon as it is safe to do so.
