If you smell gas – Basic Instructions
  1. NO FLAMES OR SPARKS!  Immediately put out all smoking materials and other open flames.  Do not operate lights, appliances, telephones or cell phones.
  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 supply valve on your propane tank if it safe to do so.  To close the valve, turn it to the right (clockwise).
  4. REPORT THE LEAK.  From your 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 qualified service technician must check your entire system to ensure it is leak free.
