Public Safety Awareness

Damage Prevention Awareness


Florida State Law, Chapter 556 in the Florida State Statute requires calling a one call center before you dig.

This does not pertain only to businesses. Homeowners putting in pools, clotheslines, mail boxes, flowers, and play ground equipment need to also consider that there could be underground lines that could be tapped into. ANYTIME you dig for any reason a call needs to be placed to the City building department at 386-758-5750 to see if a building permit will be required for the job.


Sunshine State One Call of Florida, Inc. can be contacted by dialing 811. The law requires you call TWO days prior to digging. This will ensure that you do not cut any buried lines. There is no cost for this service. If you need any additional information, you can visit or call the City of Lake City at 386-758-5405 to have a Gas Representative come and speak with you and locate any gas lines.


Leak Recognition and Response


What to do if you smell gas in your home or building?

  • Leave immediately and tell others to leave too
  • From a safe distance call City hall at (386) 752-2031 or after hours at (386) 758-5405 to notify us.
  • Never try to repair a gas leak yourself. Do not turn any lights on or off, smoke or use any phones or other equipment that could cause sparks.
