What to do if you smell natural gas?

It seems like every day there's another story on the news about a gas leak and an explosion. Whether the leak is in a home, a business, or in a pipe in the backyard, it's extremely important to know what to do if you smell gas.

  1. LEAVE THE AREA WHERE YOU SMELL GAS IMEEDIATELY. Do not use any telephones, electrical switches, cell phones or turn on any appliances such as a washer, dryer, or oven. Anything that can cause a spark could ignite the gas.
  2. GO TO A SAFE LOCATION and call your local gas provider's leak hotline. Never assume someone else has reported the leak. In the greater Houston area you can contact CenterPoint Energy at 888-876-5786.
  3. ALERT YOUR NEIGHBORS. CenterPoint Energy will check a suspected leak at no cost to you.
  4. NEVER TRY TO REPAIR a gas leak yourself. Leave the repairs to trained professionals.

As more and more homes and businesses are using natural gas, the risk of a leak and ultimately an explosion rise.

If you or someone you know has been injured or killed by a natural gas explosion, contact the attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend today by calling 713-396-3964 or toll free at 1-800-870-8584.
