I smell gas. What do I do?

This may be the most crucial propane safety information you’ll ever read. Because if you follow these instructions, and execute them carefully, you can better control the situation and keep everyone else safe. Here’s what you need to do.

We strongly advise that you install propane leak detectors near all your home’s propane appliances. Sometimes the odorant isn’t strong enough to be detected by smell alone, or your sense of smell may be impaired by a cold or the flu. Carbon monoxide detectors, while also essential, are not designed to detect propane leaks.

To ensure your safety while using propane, the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) has created the videos below. Covering topics such as the proper handling and transportation of propane cylinders, how to take care of your propane appliances and more, these videos will give you the information you need to stay safe.
