Hi kids! Thanks for stopping by! Are you ready to become a natural gas safety whiz kid? Great—let’s get started!

First, let’s review the three signs of a natural gas leak:
SMELL — To help you SMELL a leak, natural gas companies add a chemical that smells like rotten eggs.

SEE — Near a gas leak, you might SEE blowing dirt, water with bubbles in it or a small area of dead plants.

HEAR — A leaking pipe might make a hissing sound you can HEAR.

And if you EVER smell, see or hear a natural gas leak:
1. Tell a grown-up right away!

2. Leave the area quickly and don’t touch or use anything electric on your way out—not even a light switch or telephone.

3. Don’t return until the natural gas company says it’s safe.

Now for the fun part!
On the right side of this page, we’ve posted some awesome natural gas safety activities. Go ahead…try the maze and word search or ask your parents for help with these two cool experiments. When you’re done, don’t forget to print out your official natural gas safety whiz kid certificate.

Before you leave, there’s just one more thing you need to do: share this information with your parents. It will only take a minute or two for you to explain what you’ve learned, and every member of your family should know what to do if there ever is a gas leak at home, school, or wherever life may take you!

Thanks—have a super day!
