    I used to work for Florida gas transmission. And they will try to cover this up and blame it on somebody. And act like it was not there fault but it sounds like to me that somebody was not doing there job. When that smell was reported if that would have been florida gas transmission that whole community would have been evacuated and the line would have been fixed. No mater what it cost now look at what happen you can't put a price on somebody's life.

    All of these gas company's are in it for the money. They say there customers and employees are first and everybody is treated the same. That's a joke I used to work for florida gas transmission I was fired for something that 4 other people 1 year before got 3 days of suspension without pay. So if you think they care about people and there families than your just crazy they tried to get me to sign a piece of paper. Saying that would not talk about what I know about them so don't think they want try to cover this up. They do not want any of the media there that's whey they are getting them to move not because they need the space I have been on employee end I know what they are doing.
