New gas station sign promotes customer safety

- A gas station in Tucker is reacting to the recent crimes at the pumps.

"We just want customers to feel safe when they come in," Service Manager Robert Hunter said.

From Dekalb County to Fulton, no where is off limits...So the Chevron at the intersection of Fellowship and Lavista Roads put up a new sign for all to see.

"After all the news of people going to service stations and becoming victims of sliders and other crimes, not to mention them feeling unsafe, we thought we would put up the sign," Hunter said. 

Hunter said the sign is in no way a knock against gas stations where crimes happen frequently.

"The sign means what it says feel safe when you come here," Hunter said.

So how are they keeping customers safe?

"We go out and greet them, we keep an eye out on them," Hunter said.

Hunter told FOX 5 the key to a safer environment is having employees go a step further...pumping gas for the elderly, handicapped or anyone in need.

A perk customers said they notice...

"People at work tell me to be sure to lock my  doors, but I'm just not used to that because I come here," Marcia Martin said.

Chevron said they plan on leaving the sign up for about a month.
