#PSEGTips: Stay safe while keeping warm

We always are monitoring our gas systems to ensure top reliability, and when frigid weather hits, we have extra crews at the ready to respond and meet the heating demands of you, our customers.

Here are four important things to remember to keep you and your family safe when old man winter strikes. There’s nothing more important to us then the safety of you and our employees.



If you smell gas, act fast. Open windows and doors. Go outside, at least 350 feet away from the source, or to a neighbor’s house. Call the PSE&G gas safety line, 1-800-880-PSEG (7734), or call 911.


Never use a gas range to heat a room or apartment. The appliance will deplete oxygen from the air, which can cause asphyxiation or deadly carbon monoxide poisoning.


Remember to check your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors for proper operation and replace their batteries at least once every year. While CO poisoning is a year-round threat, it is much more common in cold weather when more fuel-heating appliances are in use.


If you are on life-sustaining medical equipment, ensure that you have alerted PSE&G in advance and notify your local police and fire departments. For more information, visit pseg.com/life.
