Gas

Smell Gas

If you smell gas:

  • Turn off gas at the valve unless the meter is in the basement or cellar – if you smell gas there, evacuate the building.
  • Extinguish all naked flames.
  • Don’t smoke or strike matches.
  • Don’t touch electrical switches – turning switches on or off can ignite escaping gas.
  • Open windows and doors to get rid of gas by ventilating the rooms.
  • Call 0800 111 999.
