Safety tips for residential propane use

Propane has an excellent safety record, but it’s important to take certain steps if you ever detect a propane leak. Here are some safety guidelines:

  • immediately extinguish all smoking materials and open flames
  • leave the area
  • shut off the main gas supply valve on your tank if it is safe to do so
  • report the leak from a neighbor’s home or other location that is away from the leak
  • do not return to the area until your propane company or an emergency responder tells you that it is safe to do so
  • get your system checked before you attempt to use any propane appliances
