Center Point Energy launches “Safe and Smart with Buddy Blue Flame”

Center Point Energy, a leader in electric and natural gas distribution, has launched Safe and Smart with Buddy Blue Flame™, an online educational platform that provides meaningful information about the natural gas industry and safety guidelines.

The website features visually interesting content including activities, interactive games and educational videos designed to increase awareness of natural gas concepts and how to be safe around natural gas. This educational platform for kids, parents and teachers allows users to learn where natural gas comes from, how it is used and how to be safe and smart around it.

Parents can use the website to learn important safety tips like the 811 Call Before You Dig program, as well as practical energy efficiency tips to make their natural gas last and save money in the process. Teachers can access free resources like a natural gas vocabulary list and printable fact sheet, classroom activities and educational resources.
