DON’T TAKE CHANCES: O&R REMINDS CUSTOMERS TO REPORT GAS ODORS
PEARL RIVER, NY March 17, 2014 – O&R and PCL&P today renewed its advice to customers about natural gas odors: if you smell natural gas, report it to O&R immediately.
The telephone number to call is: 1-800-533-5325.
That phone line is staffed every day, around the clock 24/7/365. A gas crew will be dispatched to respond to your report immediately. There is no charge for the crew to respond. The crew members are only interested in your safety.
The natural gas odor smells like rotten eggs and is added to the natural gas so that leaks can be readily detected.
O&R offers customers a number of gas safety tips. When you suspect a gas leak you should:
- Leave your home immediately and take others with you. If outside, get well away from where you suspect the gas is leaking.
- Open windows before you leave if the odor is faint.
- Call us at 800-533-5325 once safely away from the leak.
- Tell us if there is also a problem with your electric service.
- NOT do anything to create a spark that could cause an explosion, such as lighting a match, turning appliances on or off, using a phone or cell phone. Do not ring a doorbell or start a car.
Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. (O&R), a wholly owned subsidiary of Consolidated Edison, Inc., one of the nation’s largest investor-owned energy companies, is a regulated utility. It provides natural gas service to approximately 130,000 customers in New York and Pennsylvania.

Representative Sean Patrick Maloney announced his staff will be available for Satellite Office Hours in Carmel, Middletown and Poughkeepsie beginning this month. In addition to normal office hours in Rep. Maloney's district office in Newburgh, satellite office hours will offer constituents to visit have the opportunity to share any questions, comments or concerns with a constituent advocate, who is available to assist with any problems folks from the Hudson Valley may be having with a federal government agency, such as the Social Security Administration, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or the Veterans Administration.
"I'm here to work for folks in the Hudson Valley, and our office is here to be their advocate and help cut through any bureaucratic red tape of the federal government," said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. "Too often people feel like no one is fighting for them, and while my district office in Newburgh is at the crossroads of the district, holding satellite office hours will allow my constituent advocates to be more accessible to folks all across the Hudson Valley."
Representative Maloney's office has handled over 1,000 new cases, and so far, Rep. Maloney has helped return $1,111,369 to Hudson Valley taxpayers who were owed Social Security checks, veterans' benefits, tax refunds and other payments from the federal government.
