Smell Gas

Smell gas? Act Fast.

Natural gas is a colorless, odorless fuel.  For safety reasons a chemical odorant sometimes described as a "rotten egg" smell is added, making the presence of gas detectable. 

If you smell the "rotten egg" smell:

  • Leave the area immediately!
  • Open doors and windows as you leave
  • Do not operate electric lights, appliances or other equipment such as telephones, cell phones and flashlights.
  • Get to a phone away from the area and call the City of Buford or 911.
