Please report any fire hazards or fire code violations to the Fire Marshal's Office at 214-987-5380.
Proper addressing will assist your fire department in promptly dealing with your emergencies.
If you suspect a natural gas leak on your property, stop what you’re doing, leave the premises, and call 911.
Smell – Because natural gas is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, a distinctive, sulfur-like, rotten egg odor is added so you can detect even small amounts of natural gas.
Sound - In addition to the smell, pay attention to hissing, whistling or roaring sounds coming from underground or from a gas appliance.
Sight - Be aware of dirt spraying into the air, continual bubbling in a pond or creek, and dead or dying vegetation in an otherwise moist area.
Other leak indicators - The stovetop’s blue flames suddenly turn orange or yellow (discolored flames indicate the appliance is not working properly). An excessive amount of ash or soot around a pilot light could signal a larger problem.
