Thank you for your interest in Con Edison. To help us respond to your question or concern, please refer to the information below.

For Gas Emergencies
Natural gas is a safe, reliable fuel, but leaks can create fires and explosions. That’s why a strong rotten egg odor is added so you can detect even small gas leaks. Other signs of a leak include a white cloud, mist, fog, or bubbles in standing water and a roaring, hissing, or whistling sound.

If you smell gas or suspect there is a gas leak: 

  • Leave the premises immediately and take others with you.
  • Open windows before you leave if the odor is faint.
  • If outdoors, get well away from where you smell the natural gas.
  • Do not do anything to create a spark that could cause an explosion, such as lighting a match, starting a car, turning appliances, lights, or flashlights on or off, using a telephone or cell phone, and ringing doorbells.
  • Once you are a safe distance away, call 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633). National Grid customers call 1-718-643-4050.
