Gas leak? Your nose knows.

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 smoke or use lighters or matches
  • DON'T start motors or motor vehicles on the property
