Safety Information for Users of LP Gas

Propane (LP Gas) is a flammable gas which can cause fires and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions which can protect both you and your family from an accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point by point with the members of your household. Someday, when there may not be a minute to lose, everyone’s safety will depend on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following information, you feel you still need more information, please contact your gas supplier.

LP Gas Warning Odor

If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP Gas. That’s your signal to go into immediate action!

Do not operate electric switches, light matches or use your phone. Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.

IMMEDIATELY get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer or area.

Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.

LP Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas such as basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak, keep out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until firefighters declare them to be safe.

Use your neighbor’s phone and call a trained LP Gas service technician and the fire department. Even though you may not continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do not reenter the building, vehicle, trailer or area.

Have the service technician or fire department air out the area before you return. A properly trained LP Gas service technician must repair the leak, check and relight the gas furnace for you.

Some Points to Remember

Learn to recognize the odor of LP Gas. Your local LP Gas dealer can give you a ”Scratch and Sniff” pamphlet. Use it to find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that your LP Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LP Gas dealer.

If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments to appliances on the LP Gas system. If you are qualified, consciously think about the odor of LP Gas prior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service or making adjustments.

Sometimes a basement or a closed–up house has a musty smell that can cover up the LP Gas odor. Do not try to

light pilot lights, perform service or make adjustments in an area where the conditions are such that you may not detect the odor if there has been a leak of LP Gas.

Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or absorption on walls of new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks or reinstalled old tanks if they are filled and allowed to set too long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which have been out of service for a time may develop internal rust which will cause odor fade. If such conditions are suspected to exist, a periodic sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you have any question about the gas odor, call your LP Gas dealer. A periodic sniff test of the LP Gas is a good safety measure under any condition.

If, at any time, you do not smell the LP Gas odorant, and you should, assume you have a leak. Then take

the same immediate action recommended when you do smell the odorized LP Gas.

• If you experience a complete ”gas out” (the container is under no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately. If the container valve is left on, the container may draw in some air through openings such as pilot light orifices.

If this occurs, some new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is left open, then treat the container as a new tank. Always be sure your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off at the container before it goes completely empty or having it refilled before it is completely empty.
