If you suspect a gas leak, do not do anything that can cause a spark or flame. Any spark or flame in the area where propane gas is present may ignite the gas.
- Immediately put out smoking materials and other open flames
- Do not turn lights on or off
- Do not use any type of phone
- Do not operate any type of equipment or appliance
- If possible, close all gas tanks, cylinders or gas meter supply values. Tank and cylinder valves turn off in the clockwise direction. Gas Meter values are in the off position when the handle is perpendicular to the piping.
- Ventilate the area
- Get everyone out, and leave the area at once
- Call your local fire department and propane service professional from a safe place such as a neighbor’s home.
- Do not re-enter the area until it has been inspected by a professional and determined to be safe. Make sure the area has been aired out prior to your return.
- Have a CETP-trained propane service professional repair any leak, turn on the gas, leak test the system, check all the gas appliances and relight the pilot lights.
