Gas: Clean. Efficient. Nontoxic. And naturally odorless.* All-in-all, it’s one of
the safest, most environmentally friendly
fossil fuels in use today.

Our friend, Sniffy, knows a lot about natural gas and propane. On this Web site, he has provided information to help you learn more about gas safety.

Speaking of safety: Smell Gas? Act Fast! is Sniffy’s way of reminding you that if the smell of gas is in the air, whether a little or a lot, don’t delay—get away!

* That's right, gas, in its natural form, has no odor! The distinctive smell you recognize is actually added by the gas company to help you detect gas leaking into the air. Sometimes you can see or hear a gas leak too! Click here to find out how.
