Gas leak

If you detect natural gas, fumes or vapors:

  • Call 911 to report the situation.
  • Clear the area immediately if instructed to do so by the emergency dispatcher, providing assistance to those with special needs.
  • Provide your location and location of the odor to the dispatcher.
  • Provide as many details as possible to the dispatcher.

If a building or area evacuation is ordered by the emergency responders:

  • Leave all ventilation systems operating unless instructed otherwise by emergency responders.
  • Leave the area immediately, avoiding the use of elevators unless necessary.
  • Identify people with special needs and provide assistance if possible. Otherwise, provide their location to emergency responders.
  • Report to your department’s designated gathering point to be accounted for.
