DO YOU SMELL GAS IN YOUR HOUSE?
If the smell is very weak and coming from an appliance:
- Open the doors and windows to ventilate the house.
- Call the Gazifère emergency number at once: 819 771-8321 and select option 1.
If the smell is strong and you hear a hissing sound:
- Stay calm. Do not use the telephone, do not touch a switch, do not turn any appliance on or off, do not smoke and do not light a flame of any kind.
- Immediately evacuate all occupants and pets.
- If possible, leave the door open to ventilate the house.
- Call our emergency number from a neighbour’s telephone.
- If the leaking natural gas is burning, do not try to put the fire out. Dial 9-1-1.
There is no charge for a safety inspection following the reporting of a suspected natural gas odour.
