Natural Gas Safety Tips

  • If you or a family member are told to evacuate, please do not turn off any natural gas valves.
  • If you return home and smell the distinctive "rotten egg" odor of natural gas, leave the area immediately. From a safe distance call 911 and the Atmos Energy emergency number: 866-322-8667.
