Natural Gas Leak Safety Tips
So you think you smell Natural Gas? Here are a few tips from the New Jersey Natural Gas site that can be helpful and even lifesaving in the case of a Natural Gas leak. With so many news stories recently about the dangers of this natural resource, I thought it would be a good idea to brush up on how to handle this emergency situation.
Since natural gas has no scent, a strong odorant that smells like rotten eggs is added to help you detect possible leaks. If you smell natural gas:
Remove any cigarettes or other smoking materials from the area, and then extinguish them.
Do NOT use matches, lighters or other open flames or activate light switches, electrical appliances, flashlights, doorbells or even garage door openers, as they could create a spark.
Do NOT use telephones (cellular included) on the premises where the leak is suspected. Phones can create a spark.
Evacuate everyone from the building immediately and then call NJNG from a safe location at 800-GAS-LEAK (800-427-5325). Let us know where you are.
Do not re-enter the building until NJNG has declared it to be safe.
For your safety, we promptly investigate suspected natural gas leaks as a FREE service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Other Signs of a Potential Natural Gas Leak
Sight – look for dirt blowing into the air, persistent bubbling in standing water, or discolored or dead vegetation around the pipeline area.
Sound – listen for any unusual hissing or roaring sound.
