Mayfield Rd. Gas Leak

On April 18, during a natural gas release response on Mayfield Rd., GPFD safely evacuated more than 1000 residents and temporarily closed 13 businesses within the 1.68-mile hot zone perimeter as Atmos Energy worked to pinpoint the natural gas leak. Occupants were able to return after GPFD, in cooperation with Atmos Energy, air-monitored the area and determined it to be safe. No injuries or loss of structure were reported as a result of a collaborative effort involving multiple state and local entities, including seven City of GP Departments. We appreciate our community’s support and patience as we worked to secure the area.
