General Safety Considerations

If you find a propane tank on your property that is not yours, or if your propane tank has become dislodged or is missing, contact us to assist you.

If your propane appliances have been exposed to water, they can create a fire hazard. Please seek assistance before attempting to use them. 

Do not under any circumstances try to modify or repair valves, regulators, or other parts on your own.

Never store a propane cylinder indoors or in an enclosed area such as a basement, garage, or shed.

Do not use or operate any appliances or equipment, or turn on the gas supply until everything has been inspected by a qualified technician.

If at any time, you smell gas inside or outside your home, leave the area and call for assistance right away.

Flood water can make the air quality in your home unsafe. Please refer to the Environmental Protection Agency’s resource page on indoor air quality after a flood here.

Please read about electrical hazards to watch out for after a flood from the Center For Disease Control & Protection
