Propane Safety Corner
If you ever experience severe flooding on your property, it’s important to know the right steps to protect your family and home, especially when it involves your propane storage tank and appliances.
- After flooding has ended, look for visible structural damage.
- Do not relight pilot lights for equipment. Instead, shut off the service valve at the propane tank and call us.
- If you smell gas, or see bubbles in standing water, extinguish all flames and smoking materials, get everyone away immediately and contact us or dial 911.
- Damage to propane regulators and controls is a significant problem when flooding occurs. We recommend a complete inspection of the entire system, because water damage to propane equipment and appliances is not always readily apparent. We will make sure valves and regulators are operating properly and the lines are pressurized.
