GAS LEAKS


WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS

If you think you smell propane in your home, camper, RV or the area around any gas equipment, or if a gas alarm signals the presence of propane, you should IMMEDIATELY follow these suggestions:

  • Extinguish all smoking materials and any other open flames or sources of ignition.
  • Everyone should vacate the building, vehicle or area.
  • Move away without using any electric switches, appliances, thermostats, or telephones.
  • Close the gas shutoff valve on the propane tank or cylinder (if safe to do so).
  • Call your propane supplier and/or your local fire department from a cellular telephone or a neighbor’s telephone.
  • Even if you do not continue to smell propane do not open or turn on the propane supply valve. Do not re-enter the building, vehicle or area. Let a qualified propane service technician and/or emergency personnel check for escaped propane.
  • Have a properly trained propane service technician repair the leak. The propane service technician or emergency responder needs to determine that the leak situation has been fully resolved. The propane service technician should check all of your gas appliances and re-light any appliance pilots.
  • Return to the building, camper, RV or area only when the service or emergency technician indicates it is safe to do so.
