Gas Safety

If you smell gas or fumes you should:

Not smoke or use naked flames

Don’t switch any electrical appliances on

Do not use a mobile phone anywhere near the leak

Turn off the appliance

Turn off the gas supply at the meter

Open doors and windows to allow the gas to disperse

CALL National Grid Gas IMMEDIATELY on 0800 111 999 from a phone outside the property

National Grid Gas will try to find the leak and carry out immediate repairs if they can be done easily. If more extensive work is needed National Grid Gas will make safe and inform Boston Mayflower and carry out the work as soon as possible.

If you smell gas outside your property or in the street please report it immediately to National Grid Gas. The gas emergency service provides a 24 hour response and will usually be free.

Never attempt to fit, repair or service your gas fire, central heating or cooker yourself. Gas can be extremely dangerous and any work connected with it should only be carried out by suitably qualified individuals who are on the Gas Safe register.
