KALISPELL - NorthWestern Energy is reminding customers of several important safety measures after heavy snow and bitter cold has hit northwest and north-central Montana.
Natural gas customers should make sure that heating and appliance exhaust vents are clear as blockage can result in a loss of heat or possibly a build-up of deadly carbon monoxide in homes and businesses.
Additionally, if your home has a natural gas meter, carefully remove an accumulation of ice or snow on top of, or around the meter.

NorthWestern Energy customers should call (888) 467-2669 if they suspect a natural gas leak, meter damage or have other concerns about their utility service.
