All gas leaks are potentially dangerous. Any incident involving gas leaks or suspicious odors should be reported so that appropriate departments can be notified and the source of the odor can be investigated. If you encounter or suspect a gas leak, contact UPD at 202-994-6111 for the Foggy Bottom and Virginia Campuses or 202-242-6111 for the Mount Vernon Campus.
The Office of Health and Safety (OHS) will perform monitoring and evaluation procedures to determine the source. In the event that the source can not be found, OHS will contact Washington Gas for an on-site evaluation.
If a gas leak requires evacuation, follow the university's evacuation procedures.
Health and Safety can be contacted at 202-994-4347 and after hours through UPD at 202-994-6111 for the Foggy Bottom and Virginia Campuses or 202-242-6111 for the Mount Vernon Campus.
