The nose knows: Propane safety tips from Propane Annie

Just like any good hunting dog knows: the nose knows! Make sure everyone in your home can recognize the smell of propane. Propane smells like rotten eggs, a skunk’s spray or a dead animal. Propane manufacturers add this smell to alert customers to propane leaks.

What to do if you smell propane:

DO get everyone out of the home and away from nearby areas.
DO NOT attempt to find the leak.
DO NOT attempt to repair your appliance or light your pilot light.
DO NOT turn on or off light switches inside the home.
DO NOT use a telephone or cell inside the home or in nearby areas.
DO NOT light matches anywhere inside or near the home.
DO shut off the valve at the tank.
DO call both your propane supplier and the fire department for help from a telephone that is away from the home and nearby area.
DO NOT return to the building or area until it is determined to be safe by the responders.
