Years 1-3: Colour in the Gas Safety Scene

Use your creativity to colour in the image and learn about gas safety inside and outside the home. For parents and teachers, this is a great opportunity to engage in conversation with students around what to do if they smell gas.

A rotten egg smell? Did you know that this smell is added to natural gas as a safety precaution to help you detect gas leaks? If you suspect a gas leak it’s important to follow these steps;

  • Eliminate ignition sources
  • Leave the area immediately
  • Contacting ATCO on 13 13 52
