What to do if you suspect a gas leak

If you smell a natural gas odor, hear the hissing sound of gas escaping or see other signs of a leak:

  • REMAIN calm.
  • DON'T light a match, candle or cigarette.
  • DON'T turn electrical appliances or lights on or off or use any device that could cause a spark.
  • IMMEDIATELY EVACUATE the area, and from a safe location, call your local natural gas company and 9-1-1 for emergency response.
