Making a Safe Fuel Even Safer.

Propane is a very safe fuel. But as with any energy source, there are steps you should take to further ensure your safety:

  • If you detect a gas leak, immediately evacuate everyone from the house and call Reliance or the fire department from a neighbor’s telephone.
  • Learn what propane smells like. Reliance has scratch-and-sniff pamphlets to help your family recognize its distinctive odor. It smells like rotten eggs.
  • Know where gas lines are located, so you won’t damage them when digging or working in the yard.
  • Change or clean furnace filters regularly as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Don’t store cleaning fluids, oil-soaked rags, gasoline, or other flammable liquids near a gas-burning appliance where vapors could be ignited by the pilot light.
