Smell Gas. Act Fast.
Smell rotten eggs? If you suspect a gas leak, leave immediately and take others with you.
DO NOT use a phone; light a match; start a car, or turn on or off lights, flashlights, appliances, or anything else that could create a spark and cause the gas to explode. Once you’re safely away from the area, call 911 or 1-800-752-6633. National Grid customers call 1-718-643-4050.
Stay safe by making sure your burners are turned off when you’re not using them. And never store combustible items near gas appliances. Don’t step, sit, lean or place any objects on gas pipes or equipment. Visit to learn more.

4 Tips to Keep You Safe This Winter
1. Don’t enclose your gas meter. Remove snow and ice from around the meter and piping with a brush, not a shovel.
2. Don’t let snow, ice, leaves, or other debris block vents and exhaust ducts. This prevents the dangerous accumulation of carbon monoxide inside buildings.
3. Check the batteries on your CO detector. And if you don’t have one, consider investing in one. CO detectors alert you when deadly carbon monoxide is collecting inside your building.
4. Don’t mess with gas. Do you suspect illegal tampering with a gas line? Call 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633).For more information, visit
Be prepared for severe weather. Here are some tips to stay safe before, during, and after storms:
Never go near or touch a fallen power line.
If you see a downed wire, call 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633) immediately.
If power goes out, turn off appliances, but leave a light switched on so you’ll know when service is restored.
