At Bailey Propane safety is our top priority!
There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our customers and mountain communities. If you smell gas in your home, follow these steps:
NO FLAMES OR SPARKS. Immediately put out all smoking materials and other open flames. Do not operate lights, appliances, telephones, or cell phones. Flames or sparks from these sources can trigger an explosion or a fire.
LEAVE THE AREA IMMEDIATELY. Get everyone out of the building or area where you suspect gas is leaking
SHUT OFF THE GAS. Turn off the main gas supply valve on your propane tank if it is safe to do so. To close the valve, turn it to the right (clockwise).
REPORT THE LEAK. From a neighbor’s home or other nearby building away from the gas leak, call your propane retailer right away. If you can’t reach your propane retailer, call 911 or your local fire department.
DO NOT RETURN TO THE BUILDING OR AREA until your propane retailer, emergency responder, or qualified service technician determines that 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. Our customers must notify Bailey Propane Company, Inc. in the event of installing new and/or changing Propane/Gas appliances.
SNOWFALL SAFETY. In the Colorado mountain communities’ cold weather season, it is important to pay attention to the extra care Propane systems require when exposed to heavy snowfall events.
