When it comes to reporting a gas leak or gas outage, time is of the essence. These types of situations can become emergencies quickly, putting you and your family’s safety at risk if the gas leak is not handled properly. That’s why it’s important to know who to call for a gas leak and how to report the smell of gas before the issue becomes a more serious risk.

Energy suppliers and utilities work closely to ensure you have a steady supply of electricity or natural gas reaching your home. But regardless of who your natural gas provider is, you’ll want to contact your utility company in the event of a suspected gas leak or outage, as they directly manage the lines and equipment that supply your natural gas. You can also schedule annual natural gas safety inspections and familiarize yourself with some facts about energy to help prevent events like this from occurring.
