What to do if you smell gas

Natural gas has an odor similar to rotten eggs so that even the smallest leaks can be detected.

Follow these steps if you smell gas at your home or business:

Please note: There is no charge for calling the gas company to check for a gas leak. Osgood gas utilities is available to respond 24 hours per day, 365 days a year.

Call before you dig

If you are planning to dig a hole, tear down a building or engage in any other earth moving activity, please call Toll Free 1-800-382-5544, at least two full days before you dig. We'll show you and your contractor where the gas line are located and help you avoid any problems. Cutting a buried utility line can be dangerous, costly, and inconvenient. So don't dig blind, make the call please.

Call 811

Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas produced when fuels such as gasoline, propane, kerosene, natural gas, coal and wood do not have an adequate oxygen supply to burn completely. The most common sources are automobiles, furnaces and boilers that haven't been properly maintained. An estimated 10,000 people are treated annually nationwide for carbon monoxide poisoning - the most common cause being vehicle fumes.

Visit the American Red Cross for additional information in regards to Carbon Monoxide and Prevention.

Safety Tips

Natural Gas Appliance Safety

To ensure safety and efficiency, have your furnace, water heater and other natural gas appliances inspected by a licensed technician once a year. Also, do not store flammable liquids, paint or other flammable materials near a furnace, stove or water heater. Keep the lint trap on your gas dryer clean and the exhaust hose clear.

Hot Water Safety

Natural gas water heaters are a fast, efficient way to heat the water in your home. But with any heater, parents should exercise caution when using hot water around small children, especially in the bathtub.

Space Heater Safety

Osgood utilities does not recommend the use of space heaters. However, if you choose to use a space heater, please be safe.
