As winter approaches, so does cold weather and higher use of gas. This makes Ameren Illinois want to make sure people are as safe as possible while their customers are using more gas throughout these months. Gina Meehan-Taylor, Public Awareness Supervisor, with Ameren said the gas they supply gives off an odor and if anyone smells anything, they should leave the house and call Ameren immediately.
Meehan-Taylor said when people smell a gas leak, don't open windows, because it could be more dangerous, it's more important to call no matter what day or time it is.
That number to call is 800-755-5000, and for more information go to ameren.com.
