What You Can Do

While natural gas leaks and related incidents are rare, please do the following to ensure the best-possible safety.

  • Have your natural gas appliances installed and maintained by a preferred FPU Energy Partner
  • If you choose to install your natural gas appliance(s), check the local codes and closely follow the manufacturer’s instructions
  • Operate appliances according to their instructions and intended purpose (Do not use a range to heat a room, etc.)
  • Know how to sense possible danger and be able to recognize the ‘rotten egg’ smell that could potentially indicate a natural gas leak
