NATURAL GAS SAFETY AT HOME:
To burn properly, natural gas mixes with just the righ amount of air to be ignited by a spark or flame. Natural gas that burns without enough air produces a deadly gas - cabon monoxide!
Breathing natural gas is harmful because it contains no oxygen. Natural gas is colorless and odorless, it contains a chemical with a distinct smell to alert you of a leak: the added odor smells like rotten eggs.
A faint odor may mean that a pilot light has gone out and should be relit; however, a strong odor means you should leave the home at once and call your local utility company or emergency personel from a neighbor's home. Do not turn on any electrical switches, use a telephone or flashligh; an electric spark could ignite the gas fumes and cause an explosion. Never try to locate a leak yourself, it could be fatal! When in doubt, GET OUT!
Let the experts who work for your local gas provider or emergency personnel handle it. If you smell gas, our 24 hour emergency Utility call center can be reached at 770-267-3429, or you can dial 911 for an emergency response.
