If you live in Dougherty County and have received a call asking you to take a survey about gas safety, it's not a scam!

All Water, Gas, and Light customers who live in Dougherty County will receive a call from a number that's from a Washington D.C. area code.

The problems started when someone put on the internet that the call was a scam.

From that point on, the rumors started and people started avoiding the calls.

Lorie Farkas with Water, Gas, and Light says, "you need to know what to do for safety so it's important to answer the questions it is not a scam again the scam is whoever put it out on the internet."

Farkas adds that the survey is quick and easy, and should only take a few minutes.
