First, letís review the three signs of a natural gas leak:

SEE ó Near a gas leak, you might SEE blowing dirt, water with bubbles in it or a small area of dead plants.
HEAR ó 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 donít touch or use anything electric on your way outónot even a light switch or telephone.
3. Donít return until the natural gas company says itís safe.
