Gas Emergency Advice.

If you think you can smell gas, or you suspect that there may be a gas escape:


  • Turn off the gas at the meter, unless the meter is located in a cellar or basement - in which case do not enter.
  • Extinguish all naked flames - do not smoke or strike matches.
  • Turn off all gas appliances and do not use them again until checked by the engineer.
  • Do not operate any electrical appliances or turn any switches on or off.
  • Open doors and windows to ventilate the property.
  • Ensure access is available to the emergency services.

Immediately call the 24hour National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999.
