Proper handling of tanks

  • Don’t use or store portable propane tanks in enclosed or indoor areas
  • Properly secure portable propane tanks when transporting
  • Do not leave portable propane tanks in cars or closed vehicles, especially during hot weather
  • Contact a qualified propane service to connect tanks to appliances(we do offer this service)

What to do If you smell gas

  • Immediately extinguish all smoking materials and open flames
  • Get everyone out of the area where you suspect the gas is leaking
  • Turn off the gas supply valve of your propane tank if it is safe to do so
  • Once away from the leak, contact your propane supplier(you can reach us at (505) 877-5844. If you can’t reach your propane supplier, call 911
  • Do not return to the area until your propane retailer, emergency responder, or qualified service technician determines it is safe to do so
  • Get your system checked. Before you attempt to use any of your propane appliances, your propane retailer or a qualified service technician must check your entire system to ensure that it is leak-free. (we do offer this service)
