National Gas Workers Day

Chesapeake Utilities Corporation proudly joins gas companies across the nation in celebrating National Gas Workers’ Day, on March 18.

We want to recognize and show gratitude to our gas workers.

At Chesapeake Utilities, our gas workers keep natural gas and propane gas flowing around the clock despite challenging conditions.

Employees work efficiently to minimize disruption to our customers.

They also help to deliver our commitment to keep people safe by inspecting and maintaining more than 8,700 miles of transmission, distribution and service lines.

Each team member plays a vital role in modernizing natural gas delivery systems for our growing communities.

A message from Jeff Sylvester, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer

Today we celebrate National Gas Workers’ Day, a day of recognition established by the American Public Gas Association to honor gas utility employees for their hard work and accomplishments.

It’s easy to take for granted the quality of life and reliable service that our teams provide. Chesapeake Utilities Corporation and our subsidiaries proudly serve more than 300,000 customers who depend on safe, reliable and affordable natural gas and propane. Our teams keep gas safely flowing – no matter the weather condition or time of day. These team members are the first responders of our industry, and we personally appreciate all they do for Chesapeake Utilities Corporation and our customers.

As an example of our team’s commitment, when a polar vortex impacted many of our service territories in late 2022, our natural gas and propane teams were hard at work. Team members left their families and friends during a traditional holiday period to answer the call to serve. The energy our customers expect was delivered to keep their loved ones comfortable and warm during this significant cold snap.

On behalf of our Company and customers, thank you for your commitment to deliver energy that makes life better for the people and communities we serve. Your dedication to excellence makes me proud to work alongside each of you.

To celebrate these valued team members, a grab-and-go style breakfast will be served at our respective business unit locations. Please check with your local manager regarding breakfast times for your location.
