Surviving a Heat Wave: Safety Tips from AmeriGas

If you head over to www.weather.com, you will be greeted with the following image and main story depicting the massive heat wave much of the country is facing:


Here are some tips of how your family can stay safe before, during and after periods of extreme heat.

Before: Be Prepared for Periods of Extreme Heat

  • Make sure your propane tank and cylinders are painted with a light-reflecting color
  • Know how and where to shut off the outdoor propane supply and indoor propane appliances
  • NEVER store or place a propane cylinder indoors or in an enclosed area such as a basement, garage, shed or tent
  • Consider installing a carbon monoxide (CO) detector

During: What to do During Periods of Extreme Heat

  • Make sure the area within 10 feet of your propane tank and propane grill is clear of flammable materials. Remove any debris that is easily ignited, including leaves, brush, vegetation and rags.
  • Cool down your outdoor propane tank by spraying it with a garden hose

After: Follow these General Safety Rules

  • Do not under any circumstances try to modify or repair valves, regulators or other appliance parts
  • Do NOT use outdoor propane appliances indoors or in enclosed areas, including outdoor portable heaters, propane grills and portable generators
  • Only use appliances indoors that are designed and approved for indoor use

If you have any additional questions regarding propane safety during periods of extreme heat, see our brochure or contact your local AmeriGas office.

    Thanks for taking the time to put these safety tips out there. Pressurized propane is not something to take lightly. It can be very dangerous.

    Especially when you mention under no circumstances should you mess with valves, regulators or other appliance parts. I have personally seen a valve break and it instantly began to freeze everything near it.

    Thanks again for the tips.
