Knowing What To Do When You Smell Natural Gas with FortisBC

It’s very important to understand what to do if you small natural gas in your home. Making sure you make all that right steps and precautions so this doesn’t happen in your home is right here for you. If by some chance it doesn’t happen to you, can you fully admit that you are prepared, you know what to look out for and what to do?? I’m very thankful for a handy husband and for the education that FortisBC has given us about Gas Safety.

As a family we’re always making sure we’re up to date and know what to look for when it comes to natural gas leaks. My husband is always on top of things, which had me thinking… Do I know what to look for or know what to do if I smelled natural gas when he wasn’t home? I really started to make sure that I read and researched everything I could to help myself. I followed him around our home and made sure I knew of the possibilities of where a leak could come from.

I think that it’s really important and handy to know what to do when you smell natural gas. Just having that peace of mind helps our family feel safe. Thankfully FortisBC has given and provided a lot of information and resources to help us out! Natural gas is a sneaky one as it’s odourless and colourless, trace amounts of a chemical called mercaptan that smells like rotten eggs is added to help you detect a potential natural gas leak.

So let’s get started on a few things. Now that you kind of have an understanding of natural gas safety, let’s talk more on what to do if you smell rotten eggs, and some precautions to help you before you smell it!

Know What To Do If You Smell Natural Gas:

  • Before anything right now what your sitting on the computer research and watch some great videos courtesy of FortisBC http://bit.ly/GasOdour they have been a huge resource for our family.
  • If you or a loved one smells rotten eggs, stop what you’re doing
  • Leave your home
  • Call FortisBC’s 24 hour emergency line 1-800-663-9911 or 911

Taking measures before you detect natural gas is the best idea for all homeowners. Our family has gone through all the steps and listed what we have done below just to be sure.

Things To Do Before You Smell Natural Gas:

  • Do your research make sure you read articles like this one or watch videos just to help educate yourself and your family.
  • Get annual maintenance on all your natural gas appliances and equipment

Buying & Selling with ReShopper

I have a challenge for you. Look around your home, your kids rooms, your garage…and tell me, how many boxes of unused or outgrown items you have that belong to your children? If your like us over here, then your answer will probably be A LOT. We accumulate so many children’s items over the years, that they have either stopped loving or have outgrown OR just stop needing. Until recently we would stare at it trying to figure out what to do with it. Debating selling it or keeping it just in case? In reality, we most likely won’t use. …

Living Room Essentials | WayFair

We have been slowly making our way into finally getting settled in our home, we’ve been living here for about two years now. But owning feels just a little different, we’ve been taking our time figuring out what to buy, where to put it and what looks good where! It feels like we’re starting to find our style in our home and making it ours. Month by month we’ve been piecing together each room in our house. Starting with the kids, ours, bathrooms, halls and now living room & dining room. I can’t begin to describe my love hate relationship with Pinterest. There are so many wonderful ideas that I love them all and want to use them all!…

Fairmont Vancouver for the Santa Claus Parade

Our family visit to the Fairmont Vancouver to watch our first ever Vancouver Santa Claus Parade was by far one of our most memorable family weekends away. To start off I’m not going to get into detail the stress we endured to make it there with rush hour traffic. So lets skip that part! The boys had decided that they also wanted to watch the hockey game at Rogers Arena before hand. The Toronto Maple Leafs (Drew’s favourite team) were in Vancouver for the only time this year to play the Canucks. They had the best time together! It was one of their first games together as well so it was extra special….

Our family tree went up today! It’s big, flocked and gorgeous. This is our second time with a flocked tree from Minter Gardens and I’ve have to admit that it’s been my favourite to have set up. It’s easy to pick up and bring home, tree stand is already attached, no needles falling to the ground, no watering needed and at the end of the season we just wrap it up and take it back to Minter Gardens for it to be recycled! Love it!…

Favourite Captured Memories | 10 Photographers 

I have been very fortunate since blogging, to have worked with so many talented photographers, I could name soo many. Today I really wanted to show some appreciation for a few of them and all their hard work in helping me create the best captured memories. I know myself, that its not always an easy job to do what they do. For them to come rain or shine, the hours of editing, time away from their families and hearing my annoying “But can I see a sneak peek?”! It takes a certain creative soul to create and make such beautiful visions happen. …
