1 Important Alert

Heat Advisory

Forecasters are calling for a run of high temperatures and humidity this weekend. We are prepared for increased energy demand and will be closely monitoring the weather and our system. We also want to ensure you are prepared as prolonged temperatures of 90°F or higher can lead to heat-related illnesses. Please stay hydrated and cool and regularly check on the elderly, young children and those with chronic illnesses in your life as they are at a higher risk.

Report a Gas Emergency

If you smell gas anywhere, including in your home, go outside and call 1-800-233-5325 or 911 immediately.

Do not assume that someone else has already reported the emergency. Help us keep your community safe! We consider any of the below a gas emergency:

  • You smell gas or suspect a gas leak.
  • There is an abnormally high or low flame or no gas in all your gas appliances.
  • Gas to an appliance or heating unit cannot be shut off.
  • There is a continuous flow of water leaking from your gas heating unit or water heater.
  • Gas pipes are making unusual noises like roaring, hissing or whistling.
  • You notice dead vegetation that does not have a cause to be there.
  • You see a white cloud, mist, fog or bubbles in standing water.
  • There is an odor other than natural gas that is irritating to your eyes, nose and/or throat or someone is exhibiting symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure such as headache, nausea, lethargy, disorientation and combativeness.

As every report of a gas leak is a potentially hazardous situation, we recommend you evacuate the premises along with any family members and pets and wait for our technician to arrive.
