Have a propane tank? What do you do if you smell gas?
Schedule Your Inspection
Ever wondered what you should do if you smell gas or suspect there may be a gas leak in your home? Read along for helpful tips of what to do or not to do should this happen to you.
Immediately put out all smoking materials and other open flames. Do NOT operate lights, appliances, telephones or mobile phones. Flames or sparks from these sources can trigger an explosion or fire.
Get everyone out of the building or area where you suspect gas is leaking.
Turn off the main gas supply valve on your propane tank, if it is safe to do so. To close the valve, turn it to the right (clockwise).
Once you are safely away from the gas leak, call your propane retailer right away. If you cannot reach your propane retailer, call 911 or your local fire department.
Wait until your propane retailer, emergency responder, or qualified professional determines that it is safe to do so.
Before you attempt to use any of your propane appliances, your propane retailer or a qualified professional must check your entire propane system to ensure that it is leak-free.
