More than 177 million Americans rely on natural gas today, according to the American Gas Association. If you are one of them, you should make it a point to know where your gas meter is on your home, and how to operate it.

But what if you hear the hiss of a gas leak, or catch a whiff of a rotten egg smell? “There are a few quick things you can do,” said Captain James Altman of the Santa Monica Fire Department.

  • If you notice something obviously wrong like sparks or flames, evacuate your house immediately and call 911. “You want to make sure that you’re at a safe distance,” Altman advised. “You want to make sure you’re across the street somewhere that you feel safe, and once you get there, you want to make sure you dial 911 from there.” 

  • If you don’t notice anything obviously wrong, make sure all the burners on your gas stove are turned off.

  • If the stove is off and you suspect a leak, don’t turn on the lights. “That could lead to a spark, which causes an explosion,” Altman said. “You want to make sure you have a flashlight handy.”

  • Open all the doors and windows. “You want to make sure you ventilate the house,” Altman said.

  • If you suddenly notice your grass or shrubs have changed color, looking more brown or rusty, that could be a sign of a leak: the gas pouring out of the pipes. If you see any of these things, make sure to call 911 immediately and then call the gas company.
