Natural Gas Leak Emergencies
In its natural state, natural gas is odorless and colorless. For easier detection of gas leaks, NIPSCO adds a distinctive “rotten egg” scent to natural gas. If you notice this odor, immediately take the following actions:
- Do NOT light matches, turn electrical switches on or off, or use a telephone in the building.
- If you smell gas inside your home or business, get out immediately.
- From a safe place, call NIPSCO to report the leak at our emergency number 1-800-634-3524 24 hours a day.
- Remain outside until NIPSCO can send someone to check on the source of the odor.
In addition to calling NIPSCO to report a gas leak, it is required by state law to contact 811 to report any damage to our facilities, as well as, 911 if there is a release of gas. Learn More about Gas Leaks
