PROPANE SAFETY

IF YOU SMELL GAS:

1.  No Flames or Sparks!  Immediately put out all smoking materials and other
open flames.  Do not operate lights, appliances, telephones, or cell phones.
Flames or sparks from these sources can trigger an explosion or a fire.

2. Leave the Area Immediately!  Get everyone out of the building or area where
you suspect gas is leaking.

3.  Shut Off The Gas.  Turn off the main gas supply valve on the propane tank if
it is safe to do so.  To close the valve, turn it to the right (clockwise).

4.  Report The Leak.  From a neighbor’s home or other nearby building away
from the gas leak, call your propane retailer right away.  If you can’t reach your
propane retailer, call 911 or your local fire department.

5.  Do Not Return To The Building Or Area until your propane retailer,
emergency responder or qualified service technician determines that it is
safe to do so.

6.  Get Your System Checked.  Before you attempt to use any of your propane
appliances, your propane retailer or a qualified service technician must check
your entire system to ensure that it is leak-free.
