During this time, please minimize any contact with utility workers who might come to your home or the home of a neighbor to service natural gas equipment, including meters. Rather than confront the utility worker with your questions or concerns, it would be safer to call Nicor Gas at 888-Nicor4U (888–642–6748) or email our Customer Care Center at customercare@nicorgas.com
