What do you do if you smell Natural Gas?

For detection and safety, gas is normally added with the unpleasant odorant called mercaptan. If you smell a rotten egg odor, do not attempt to locate the leak source.Call 911. If the smell is strong or you also hear a blowing or hissing noise, vacate the building immediately, leaving doors UNLOCKED as you leave. Deny access to the building or area. Don't turn on lights, use a cell phone, flash light, don't start your car or open your garage door if you have an electric opener. Call 911 from a safe distance.
