How to behave when you smell gas in premises?

  • Cover your nose and mouth with wet cloth or handkerchief;
  • Shut off gas valve, turn off gas appliance;
  • Open windows and doors so that fresh air flow inside;
  • Do not light a fire or strike matches, do not smoke;
  • Do not turn on electrical devices and switches;
  • If gas smell is still in the air, immediately call gas emergency service by calling 1804. Use your phone only where there is no gas smell observed or simply in a gas-clean environment.
  • If gas smell spread in the block of flats, warn neighbours not to use open flame and electrical bells/alarms;
  • Make sure that people being close to gas leakage immediately go outside;
  • Wait for emergency services outside.
