Natural gas is a colorless, odorless fuel, but for safety reasons, a chemical odorant, sometimes described as a "rotten egg" smell is added, making the presence of natural gas detectable.
If you smell this odor:
- Alert others and leave the area immediately
- Leave the door open as you exit
- Do not operate electric lights or other equipment such as telephones, cell phones, or flashlights
- Use a phone away from the area and call Scottsboro Water, Sewer and Gas Board at 256-574-1744
Natural gas odors should be reported right away.
