Propane Safety Tips to Practice at Home


  1. Proper storage: Propane tanks should always be stored outside in a dry place, on an even surface, and should have ample ventilation. They should also remain upright and secure to avoid issue.


  1. Clean up around your tank: You always want to keep a clear path to your tank. Make sure there aren't any branches or bushes around or in the path to the tank and please remember to shovel a path in the winter so our delivery drivers can safely deliver your propane. 


  1. What to do if you smell propane:
    • No flames or sparks
    • Leave the area immediately
    • Shut off the gas (if it’s safe to do so)
    • Report the leak
    • Do not return to the building or area
    • Have your system checked!
