Propane Safety and Floods

If you have been affected by the recent flooding our region has seen, and rely on propane as an energy source, please take into consideration this information about propane safety.

Floods can damage your propane equipment. A large propane tank can become dislodged from its service line and float away, striking trees, vehicles, or other heavy objects along its
path. Also, water and debris can find their way inside regulators and controls, causing potential safety issues. In addition, fallen trees and power lines can create extra safety concerns. Take the time to carefully evaluate the condition of all the structures on your property. If it is dark, use flashlights, not candles. Look carefully around the entire area. Floods can move, shift, or damage gas lines and tanks. The most important thing to remember is, do not under any circumstances try to modify or repair valves, regulators, tanks, or other appliance parts. We’re here to help!
