On Thursday afternoon, October 28, the City’s contractor struck a gas service on Prescott St. while performing roadway reconstruction. The Contractor’s superintendent immediately called 911 and the Fire, Police, and Public Works Departments responded to secure the area and evacuate residences and businesses within 300 feet as a precautionary measure. Unitil Gas was contacted according to Sanford’s Emergency Action Plan. They assessed the situation, and with assistance from the City’s and Contractor’s forces, had the service shut off within an hour.
