How to Respond to Gas Emergencies


 
Business,Home Improvement,Home Repair
Emergency personnel are trained to respond to a number of gas emergencies. When a home or commercial building is supplied with gas service, natural or otherwise, it is exposed to various risks, even while taking advantage of a more cost-efficient energy supply. Understanding the nature of gas and how it behaves in certain situations could prevent a disaster. If you’re experiencing a gas emergency in Canton GA and aren’t sure what to do, call the utility company immediately and then 911. Then, make sure the premises is completely evacuated and all tenants are a safe distance from the situation. These steps are necessary in a few different emergency events.

Outdoor Gas Leak

If gas is escaping in an exterior location, like from an exposed pipe or line, make sure you avoid the area. Gas, in any form, is extremely flammable and the smallest flame could ignite a large fire or even cause an explosion. Something as simple as turning on electrical equipment could cause a spark. Restrict traffic through the area and make sure surrounding structures are evacuated as well. For as long as the leak exists, all precautions must be taken. Most importantly, alert the authorities and let the professionals handle the gas leak in Canton GA.

Ignited Gas

If you encounter gas that is on fire, do not attempt to extinguish it unless you are specifically trained in utility service. A gas emergency in Canton GA requires the prompt service of a utility company assigned to the area or the local fire department. Gas that is already ablaze should be prevented from spreading. These fires usually have to be put out with dry chemical and never water. Water can only be used on fires that have popped up as a result of the gas fire but not on the gas itself. Most importantly, responders should not attempt to extinguish any flame while gas is still leaking as an explosion might occur.

Residential or Commercial Fires

Fires can be started in many ways, but they become significantly more dangerous when they come into contact with gas appliances. If your home or business is on fire and you know there is a risk for exposure to gas, evacuate the building right away and call the fire department and utility company. If possible, shut off the gas at the source, such as you might do on a gas-powered stove. However, if it creates an unsafe situation for you, or the problem worsens, wait for the proper authorities.

Rely on Your Gas Company

The professionals at the gas company are specially trained to respond to a gas emergency in Canton GA and don't want you, your family, employees or clients in danger because of a leak or other catastrophic event. They will do anything necessary to prevent bodily harm or damage to your home or business. Make sure if you're ever unsure, even if you only smell gas, you call the utility company. These calls are taken seriously and will always get a response. Protect those you care about and make sure a gas leak in Canton GA does not turn into a more serious situation.
