Propane and Natural Gas Safety

It is strongly recommended that LPG cylinders (such as barbecues) not be used or stored inside buildings or on balconies, but preferably in a secured shaded area outside, away from building openings and stairs. If a cylinder leaks or vents, flammable vapors may travel inside buildings.

Check rubber "O" rings and supply hose every time the cylinder is filled.

Protect natural gas meters and piping from damage by vehicles.
