Union Gas takes safety seriously. All around you, natural gas is being used safely and responsibly, providing Ontario homes and businesses with clean, affordable and reliable energy.
Natural gas smells like rotten eggs or sulphur so you know right away if there's a leak. It's not toxic but it's highly flammable. Here's how to stay safe:
- DO get everyone out of your home and off the property
- DO report the leak to Union Gas at 1-877-969-0999 or call 911
- DON'T call from inside your home or garage
- DON'T turn electrical switches or appliances on or off
- DON’T open windows
- DON'T smoke or use lighters or matches
- DON'T start motors or motor vehicles on the property
