  • Exposed pipeline after an earthquake, fire or flood

Listen: hissing, whistling or roaring near gas line or appliance 

Smell: Distinctive odor of natural gas

1.   Don’t light a match candle or cigarette

2.   Don’t turn electrical appliances or lights on or off

3.   Don’t use your telephone or any device that could cause a spark

4.   Evacuate the area to a safe location
