In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Florida changed regulations to require backup generators and enough fuel to maintain comfortable temperatures at all nursing homes and assisted living facilities statewide. Peoples Gas and the Florida Natural Gas Association worked with the Agency for Health Care Administration to provide the necessary insight and information to convey how natural gas meets needs established through the new requirements. Now, thanks to the hard work of everyone involved, Florida’s elderly citizens can be better protected in the event of a prolonged power outage.
