Gas Leak in Village Properties

Staying Safe in the Dark

A few of our Village properties are equipped with gas appliances. In the event that you smell natural gas (rotten egg) please follow this procedure:

  • Leave the apartment/house immediately and call the Office of Public Safety from a safe distance.
  • Upon exiting, leave doors/windows open for ventilation.
  • DO NOT use a telephone in the apartment.
  • DO NOT light any matches or other open flame sources.
  • DO NOT turn on any electrical switches or appliances "ON" or "OFF."
  • DO NOT attempt to re-enter the building until you are informed it is safe to do so by approved University personnel.
