Safety First
Natural gas is completely safe when it's used the
right way. The dangers occur when it leaks out of
pipes or doesn't combust properly. If you notice an
odor of natural gas (like that of rotten eggs) in your
home, apartment or outside your building at any
time of the day or night, call 1-888-483-1377 or 911
ORUD has 24 hour emergency service 7 days a week.
If you smell a gas odor, please call ORUD immediately.
(865) 483-1377
Call 811 before you dig. There are many buried utilities
including pipelines that can be damaged. Please do not guess
what’s below ground.
Call 811, it’s the law.
Natural gas pipelines are very safe.
In fact, the U.S. Department of Transportation records show that
pipelines consistently have the highest safety record among all major
transportation systems. These pipelines quietly, reliably and efficiently
deliver natural gas throughout the country for domestic and industrial
use. Natural gas pipelines are among the safest methods of
transporting energy.
If you are among the many people who live or work near a natural gas
pipeline, we need your cooperation to help ensure the safety of our
pipeline system, and your neighborhood.
Gas Safety Tips:
 Keep all gas appliances clean and properly
 Never cover fresh air vents that supply air to
your appliances.
 Do not store any flammable materials in or near
the gas appliances.
 Never use your oven or stove top to heat or dry
your clothes.
 Keep the area around your furnace and water
heater clear.
 If the odor of rotten eggs is strong or comes on
suddenly, get everyone out of the house immediately. Call ORUD or 911 from a neighbor's phone
right away.
 If you have older gas appliances, take a moment to check the connectors that link the appliance to the gas line.
One quick way to tell if a gas appliance is working
right is the color of the flame. A properly burning
flame is completely blue.
