What To Do If You Smell Propane

Here are some steps to take if you smell gas or suspect a leak:

  • Extinguish all smoking materials and any other open flames or sources of ignition.
  • Get everyone outside and away from the home or building.
  • Shut off the gas supply at the tank if possible. (Turn valve on tank to the right to close.)
  • Call Suhre’s Gas Co. at (618) 633-2231 (use a neighbor’s phone if propane smell inside the house).
  • Stay outside and leave the gas off until assistance arrives.
