Propane Safety Tips & Information

At Glades Gas, we care about our customers because you’re also our neighbors. So, we’ve put together some important tips about propane safety:

“I smell gas. What do I do?”

Thanks to stringent regulations and high standards in the propane industry, propane has a strong track record when it comes to safety.

However, you still need to know how to protect yourself if you smell gas, whether it’s in your home or elsewhere there is gas equipment or appliances.

Do you know what propane smells like? Since propane is naturally odorless, an odorant is added to it during processing so leaks can be detected. The most common description of propane’s smell is that it’s like rotten eggs.

Now that you know what it smells like, you need to know what to do if you smell that rotten-egg odor.

Taking these steps right away is essential to protecting lives and property. Follow them as soon as you smell gas.
