Did you know natural gas is odorless? That’s why National Fuel adds a rotten egg odor to your gas to alert you of a leak.
So, if you smell rotten eggs, it could be a natural gas leak. Leave the premises immediately and contact National Fuel or call 9-1-1 from a different location.
If you suspect a leak:
- Turn off and abandon any motorized equipment and move to a safe location.
- Immediately leave the area and move to an upwind direction if possible.
- Call National Fuel’s 24/7 emergency response number: 1-800-444-3130.
- Warn others and form a safe perimeter. Evacuate surrounding structures as needed.
- Avoid creating sparks or sources of heat which could cause gas to ignite. Do not light a match, start an engine, use a phone, use light switches or light flares.
- Avoid driving into the suspected leak area.
- Avoid direct contact with escaping gas because physical injury can occur.
