If you smell gas, immediately put out all smoking materials and any open flames. In addition, do not operate any cell phones, appliances or lights as sparks or flames from these sources may trigger a fire or explosion. If you smell propane that you think might be leaking, you should immediately leave the area and evacuate the building or area where you suspect that gas might be leaking.
Once you've left the area, you should try to shut off the main gas supply valve on your propane tank, if it is safe to do so. When you have exited the area and are safely away from the source of the smell, you should report the leak immediately from a neighbor's home or other nearby location by calling J & J / INGAS immediately.
- If you can't reach your propane retailer, call 911 or your local the local fire department immediately.
- DO NOT re-enter the building until your propane retailer or fire department has determined that it is safe to do so.
- Always have a trained and qualified service technician from your local propane retailer perform a complete propane system check and any of your propane appliances to be sure they remain leak free before you attempt using them.
