Safety is our highest priority. Follow these safety tips to keep yourself and your family safe:

  • Do not store combustible materials such as paints, solvents and gasoline in the same room as your:
    • Furnace
    • Oven
    • Range
    • Water heater
    • Any gas appliance
  • Do not store flammable materials such as mops, brooms, laundry and newspapers near your water heater, furnace, oven, range or any gas appliance.
  • If a pilot light is out, shut off the gas at the appliance gas shutoff valve. Wait five minutes to let gas disperse before trying to relight the appliance pilot light.
  • Keep an adjustable pipe or crescent wrench or other similar tool near your main shutoff valve so you don’t have to search for one in times of emergency.
  • Never use a flashlight, match or candle to look for gas leaks, and never turn electric switches on or off if you suspect a gas leak.
  • Stock your kitchen with a fire extinguisher.
