Natural gas leaks are capable of explosions once the concentration reaches 4.5% to 14.5%. If you have a natural gas leak, you will be bothered by a very strong, unpleasant smell of mercaptan long before the concentration reaches the explosive range. We add mercaptan to our gas just for this reason. Call and ask us to mail you our safety brochure containing a mercaptan scratch-n-sniff sticker. It's stinky!
Step 1: Leave immediately on foot, taking your pets and neighbors with you! Do not use electric switches, telephones (including cell phones), security systems, or anything that could cause a spark. Do not drive your car out of your garage. A car creates a spark when started.
Step 2: Go to a safe location in a nearby home or building. Then, call 911 and St. Croix Gas - 715?425-6177. We check suspected natural gas leaks at no cost to you.
Step 3: Never try to repair a natural gas leak yourself. Leave all repairs to a trained technician.
