Natural gas is available in most parts of Florida. Like most utilities, service continues until disrupted. Once disrupted, repairs follow the typical priority order (utility, emergency services, television/radio stations, others). Natural gas pipelines require various compressor stations throughout the pipeline system. The Florida governor has issued an order to regulate gas supplies in the state. It gives emergency workers, military operations and cleanup crews priority for the next 7 days. The Florida Highway Patrol will provide escorts for tanker truks. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is tasked with coordinating fuel distribution. The US Environmental Protection Agency has waved certain clean air fuel forumalation requirements to permit the use of fuel from other states.
