Our propane team has compiled a few tips to help you stay safe over the next few months. Please keep these in mind—especially when coping with violent thunder-and-lightning storms during the spring and summer seasons.

  1. Discuss an emergency plan with your family—including instructions on how to turn off propane systems during a power outage.
  2. Once the storm passes, check your appliances for water or other damage. Never turn on a light switch, use a power source or inspect your appliances while you are standing in water. You run the risk of electrocution.
  3. Ask us to inspect your appliances if you believe they have been damaged.
  4. Don’t operate outdoor appliances and generators in enclosed spaces—you could be in danger of carbon monoxide poisoning.
  5. If you smell propane in your house, leave immediately and call for help.
