What to do if you smell gas

Question: What should I do if I smell gas?

Answer: If you smell gas, don’t try and find where the leak is coming from.

Quickly check the burners on a gas stove and leave the house immediately. On your way out the door, you can open a window if it doesn't take much time.

Whatever you do, don’t use matches or a lighter or attempt to light a gas stove; gas is highly flammable.

What You Can Do

Get out of the house! Go across the street to be safe. Then call the gas company after you have safely made it out of the house and have them turn off the gas. Next call a professional and have them do an inspection for a gas leak. The leak could be minor or the gas line in the house could be leaking. Stay out of the house until the house has been inspected and it has been confirmed that the house is safe to enter.
