As part of our unwavering commitment to safety, SoCalGas’ Meter Safety Inspection program offers no-charge, periodic, comprehensive inspections* of our meters. If there are no obstructions to the meter, these safety-related inspections are typically conducted within five minutes. After an inspection is complete, a technician may return later to perform maintenance based on the inspection findings.
Our safety technicians work Monday - Saturday, 7:00 a.m.– 3:30 p.m. For additional security and identification purposes, all our technicians will be in a SoCalGas company uniform and carrying company-issued photo identification.
If you have received a Meter Inspection Notice and you need to schedule an appointment or make meter access arrangements, please give us a call at
(877) 268-4298, Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Preparing for MSA Inspectors
- Provide a safe path to the natural gas meter by keeping your dog in the house, garage or other secure space, away from the natural gas meter.
- Keep the area around the meter clear of any obstructions, plants or shrubs.
- Ensure there are no locked gates to prevent access to the meter.
*Per CPUC requirements, comprehensive safety meter inspections shall be conducted every three years. Dependent on circumstances and/or need, it is possible our company may visit your property more than once a year, and it is also possible that more than one group from SoCalGas may visit your property to inspect the gas meter and pipeline.
