Small Cylinder Safety Tips

What Should I do if I smell gas?

  1. Immediately put out all smoking materials and other open flames.

  2. If you are able to, safely turn off the cylinder valve. To close the valve, turn it to the right (clockwise).

  3. Immediately leave the area and call 911 or your local fire department.

  4. Before you restart the appliance, have a qualified service technician inspect your cylinder and appliance.

How should I store small cylinders?

  • NEVER store or place a propane cylinder indoors or in an enclosed area such as a basement, garage, shed, or tent.

  • NEVER store or place a propane cylinder in an area of excessive heat (120 degrees or higher) or near a stove, fireplace, or other heat source. The heat builds up pressure inside the cylinder, which may cause the pressure relief valve to release propane. Flash fires or explosions can result from exposing cylinders to heat.

  • NEVER store or place a spare cylinder under or near a barbecue grill.

  • DO NOT smoke or have any ignition sources such as flames or spark-producing electrical tools in the area while handling or transporting cylinders.

How to transport small cylinders.

  • ALWAYS transport and store a cylinder in a secure and upright position so it will not fall, shift, or roll.

  • ALWAYS close the cylinder valve and, if required, seal with a plug, even if the cylinder is empty. Ask your propane retailer if a plug is required.

  • NEVER keep a filled cylinder inside a hot vehicle or transport it inside a closed trunk.

  • ALWAYS place the cylinder in a well-ventilated area of the vehicle.

  • ALWAYS proceed directly to your destination and immediately remove the cylinder from your vehicle.

  • The law places limits on the number of cylinders and the amount of propane that can be transported in closed-bodied vehicles such as passenger cars and vans. Ask your propane retailer for more information on state and local codes that apply to you.

What do I do with my old or damaged cylinders?

  • NEVER use a damaged cylinder or a cylinder that has been in a fire. All cylinders must be inspected before they are refilled. The law requires periodic inspection of cylinders, and it is against the law to refill out-of-date cylinders. The last inspection date is stamped on the cylinder.

  • NEVER dispose of your propane cylinder by throwing it in the trash. Check to see if there are municipal programs for collection in your area, or contact your propane retailer for guidance on disposal of the cylinder.
