DALLAS (Sept. 20, 2017) – Atmos Energy is at the top of consumer lists according to J.D. Power’s 2017 Gas Utility Residential Customer Satisfaction Study. Atmos Energy ranks number one in the south region’s pool of utilities serving 400,000 or more residential customers.
“This ranking demonstrates that our continued focus on safety resonates with our customers. Safety is our number one priority and our customers have clearly heard that loud and clear,” Vice President of Customer Service Clay Cash says. “Another customer service success is our ease of access. Customers can reach us on just about any platform, mobile included, to make it easy for them to do business with us in this fast-paced, increasingly mobile society.”
The ranking is based on more than 61,000 online interviews. Results noted that customer satisfaction was largely based on the utility’s safety and communication. Atmos Energy’s first priority is always the safety of our customers, community and employees. Details on the survey and results can be viewed here.

Dr. Jerry Latham of Harwood Vision in Bedford, Texas has been receiving numerous calls about the solar eclipse happening on Monday. He sent out the following information to his clients, and we thought we’d share it here as well:
“This is in response to the numerous phone calls we have received with questions about the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21st. Your everyday activities can be carried on as you normally would, including driving. During this time, please avoid looking DIRECTLY at the sun without appropriate protection. This can be a fun event if done correctly but should not cause stress or avoidance of your daily routine. You can visit NASA’s website to view other frequently asked questions at https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/faq. They also have a few fun activities for both children and adults, including making a Cereal Box Eclipse Viewer at https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/eclipse-kit.”
Margaret Hall, of Strategic Wealth Management, is a longtime member of the Chamber, and a longtime contributor! She regularly attends luncheons and after-hours events, and she’s at almost every ribbon cutting. As an Ambassador, she’s very diligent about making Care Calls and turning in her documentation – in fact, in July alone, she made 10 calls. Because she brings a “wealth” of experience and energy to the Chamber, she’s was named the Member of the Month for July. Margaret was recognized at the recent HEB Chamber Luncheon held in Hurst.

Did you know that 55% of HEB ISD students come from homes that are economically disadvantaged? The goal of Operation Back 2 School is to supply these students with a new backpack, school supplies and provide their parents with resources to help all year long.
This year the goal is 6,000 students! With less than 2 weeks until the big event we have 2,000 kids remaining that need your help.
You can help a student start the year off right for just $30 or help a whole classroom full of kids for $600. Sponsor a student and then sign up to volunteer on that day to see the kid’s smiles and their eyes light up when they pick out their new backpack!
You already know that HEB is the place to be – we do, too. But now we want EVERYONE to know about our three great cities. And that’s why we’re hosting the HEB Chamber Photo Contest, sponsored by Frost Bank.
We’re looking for fun, original, interesting images of Hurst, Euless and Bedford. What you photograph is up to you – it could be an event, a place or an activity, a scene, people at work or some of our residents. Show us what makes HEB such a great place to live, work and play!
The contest is open to all professional and amateur photographers, including youth. And of course we have prizes: First place is $125, second prize is $75 and third prize is a $50. Your photo also might be included in our 2018 membership directory and community guide — perhaps even on the cover!
