Stay Safe Around Natural Gas

August 16, 2023      

South Shore Generator - Safe Around Natural Gas

In its natural state, natural gas is colorless, tasteless, and odorless. To make it easier to detect in the event of a leak, we add a harmless, non-toxic (but unpleasant) odorant called mercaptan which smells like rotten eggs or sulfur.

If you ever suspect a gas leak in your home or business stay calm and leave the area immediately, even if the smell seems mild. Once you are in a safe space, dial 9-1-1 and then report the emergency to us at 800-525-8222.

Three Actions to Avoid:

  • Don’t turn on or off anything that interacts with electricity while you exit to a safe area. This includes any electrical or light switches, doorbells, phones (landline or cellphone) – anything that could cause a spark has the potential to ignite leaking gas.
  • Don’t try to find or repair the leak yourself. Our technicians are trained and prepared to investigate whatever the issue is upon their arrival.
  • Don’t assume someone else will call 9-1-1 or us to report the leak. The sooner we’re notified the quicker we can make sure everyone is safe.

Learning how to be safe around natural gas is important. We’re committed to providing you with the information you need to protect yourself and your family if you ever encounter a natural gas leak.
