We recommend familiarizing yourself with basic propane safety. The Propane Education & Research Council has created some great informative videos and flyers for quick lessons and refreshers!

Do you have a propane gas leak?

  • Propane has a strong, unpleasant odor similar to rotten eggs or a skunk’s spray
  • This odorant is added intentionally to help identify propane leaks

If you think you smell propane:

Remove any ignition sources from the area

  • Put out any open flames or smoking material
  • Distance any appliances or sources that could create a spark

Vacate the area

  • Remove everyone from the building or area where you suspect a leak

Shut off the flow of gas

  • If you are able, shut off the main gas supply valve on your propane tank
  • Turn the valve clockwise to close

Report the leak

  • From a safe location, call Provanta to report the leak at 814-676-8300
  • Call 911 or your local fire department

Keep the area clear

  • Do not return to the area until your propane service technician or emergency responder says it is safe to do so

Have your system checked

  • Before using your system, be sure your propane service technician does a complete inspection and ensures it is safe to resume use
