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.
