In Case of Emergency
Safety is our top priority. If you encounter a broken, leaking or damaged pipeline, abandon equipment immediately, move to a safe distance and notify Southern Star as soon as possible. Escaping gas can be ignited by open flames or sparks from multiple sources including, but not limited to, electrical switches, motors, or mechanical equipment. To notify local emergency responders of a potentially dangerous situation, call 911.
If gas ignition has not occurred, precautions should be taken to prevent ignition, such as prohibiting smoking and rerouting traffic in the area. When gas is burning, prevent the spread of fire, but do not attempt to extinguish the burning gas. Do not attempt to operate the valves on our pipelines.
Southern Star's emergency phone number listed can also be found on all pipeline markers.
