Residents of the apartment complex say they complained several times to management over the last few months about the smell of gas.

I'm trying to not victim blame here, but did no one call either the fire department or the gas company themselves?

If I go to my building management and complain about gas, and they don't seem to react or call the gas company themselves, 911 is probably my next call. Because, for a multi-family structure in DeKalb County, that probably means at least two engine companies, a Battalion Chief, and *they* will call the gas company, and then the Salvation Army and/or Red Cross when they say "everybody out. Right. Now."

Because guess what? If the gas company finds the leak(s) are not on their side of the meter(s), they'll shut off the gas and tell the management they have to fix it and get it tested before they turn it on. If the leak(s) are in the meters or the service lines, they'll shut off the gas and then get it fixed.

Cafe Threads: Couldn't they afford an ampersand?

The company was created in 1855 to install gas street lighting.  It's quite olde-timey.

From TFA, residents complained to the landlord about gas odor and nothing got done.   Yeah, they could call 911, but this mess is entirely on the property owners.

Zero Point Scalar Field: This gaslighting conversation is having the gradual effect of making me anxious, confused, and less able to trust my own memory and perception. I'll go ahead and stick around to see what happens.
