- 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 fire.
- Leave the Area Immediately
Get everyone out of the building or area where you suspect gas is leaking.
- Shut Off the Gas
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).
- Report the Leak
From a nearby home or 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.
- Do Not Return to the Building
Do not return until your propane retailer determines it is safe to do so.
- 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.
