Severe Weather Safety

When severe weather hits, the best way to keep safe is to be prepared. South Jersey Gas is happy to provide you with information to prepare for a severe weather situation. From floods to snowstorms, and everything in between, we’re here to help.

 
  • Practice caution when using alternate sources of heat such as a space heater. Be sure to always follow manufacturer instructions for use.
  • Avoid overexertion when shoveling snow to avoid a heart attack. Always use caution, take breaks, push the snow and lift lighter loads.Once away from the home or building, call 911 and then South Jersey Gas at 800-582-7060. 
  • Be sure to check your natural gas meter to ensure it is clear of snow and ice. 
  • Shovel carefully and avoid using a snow blower around your meter. Accumulated snow can prevent the meter from operating properly and may result in a loss of service.
  • Keep the gas pressure regulator vent dry and clear to avoid the potential for dangerous indoor natural gas buildup. The vent can become plugged when ice and snow melt during the day and refreeze at night.

If at any time you suspect a gas leak, evacuate the area immediately. Once you are away from the area, call the South Jersey Gas Leak Hotline at 1-800-582-7060 and 911. Do not use anything that may cause a spark, including matches, phones, or any motorized equipment in the area where the odor and/or hissing sound exists.
