Odor of gas, family

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 888.Nicor4U (642.6748).

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