Martha Castleberry's quick response

Homeowner, Martha Castleberry, came home to the smell of gas and a hissing sound coming from a vacant house next door.

She immediately contacted the City of Lawrenceville's Gas Department at 770-963-3332. When serviceman, Joe Johnson arrived, he found the empty residence completely filled with gas.

Mrs. Castleberry's quick response that day quite possibly saved both lives and property. Mayor Johnson recently visited Mrs. Castleberry's home to personally thank her and present her with a special gift.
