What to do if there’s a gas leak?

Gas is highly flammable, and gas leaks are an extreme potential danger. Leaks can also lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. Signs of a gas leak do not always have a smell, but sometimes the smell may be similar to sulphur or rotten eggs. Other signs include hissing sounds near a gas line, white dust or clouds near the gas line, bubbles in the water and dead houseplants. Gas bills may also be higher than usual. You will likely have breathing difficulties and may experience flu-like symptoms. If there is a gas leak, evacuate the house immediately. Leave the doors open and call 000. Do not make a call from within the house, as this action could ignite the gas. NEVER attempt to repair the leak yourself or allow the situation to go unreported.
