What to Do if You Suspect a Pipeline Problem
- Leave the area, in an upwind direction, and warn others to stay away. Never attempt to operate pipeline valves or other equipment.
- If during school hours or during a school event, evacuate students and staff from the area immediately as outlined in your school’s emergency action plan.
- Call 911. If able, call the pipeline’s operator. The number is found on a nearby pipeline marker (identifying sign).
- Do not allow vehicles (including parent vehicles or buses) to be driven in an area where you suspect a leak.
