Odor of Gas

Smell Gas? Act Fast!

Natural gas is a colorless, odorless fuel, but for safety reasons, a chemical odorant sometimes described as a “rotten egg” smell is added, making the presence of gas detectable.

If you smell this odor:

  • Alert others and leave the area immediately.
  • Leave the door open as you exit.
  • Avoid touching anything that may cause a spark. This includes starting a car engine or using cell phones, lighters, matches, cigarettes, flashlights, light switches or landlines.
  • Go to a phone away from the area and call us at 1.800.492.4009.

Natural gas odors should be reported right away. Do not try to locate the source of the smell.

If you smell natural gas, call us at 1.800.492.4009.
