Sniffy Says: Smell Gas? Act Fast!

Hi, kids! I’m Sniffy. As a skunk, I’m an expert in stinky odors—like the “rotten egg” smell that’s added to natural gas. That yucky smell lets you know if there’s a possible natural gas leak.

And you know what? If you smell that stinky rotten egg odor, you’ve got to act fast!  This means don’t delay—get away! Leave the house or building.

Remember these tips when you leave:

  • Don't use or touch anything electrical, like flipping off light switches or turning off the TV— things Mom and Dad would normally have you do before you leave the house.
  • Don't even use a cell phone!
  • Don't look for the leak.

Just go outside and then tell an adult or call us at 800.492.4009 or 911.
