Gas safety in the home

If you smell gas contact Gas Networks Ireland immediately. Don't assume somebody else has reported the smell.

What to do if you smell gas

  • Call Gas Networks Ireland - If you can’t get through, dial 999.
  • Ensure gas appliances are turned off and have not been left on and/or unlit
  • Don’t use a phone in the immediate area of the leak, use a neighbour’s or call from outside
  • Open windows and doors
  • If the smell persists turn off the gas at the meter
  • Don’t smoke or use naked flame
  • Don’t unplug or switch anything electrical on or off
