Each year, hurricanes endanger the lives of thousands of people and cause extreme property damage. A hurricane can be accompanied by tornadoes, thunderstorms, flooding mudslides and power outages. Hurricane season typically starts in June and lasts through November.
10 Things You Can Do to Keep Your Family Safe
- In flood zone areas, make sure your large above-ground and underground propane tanks are anchored securely to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
- Create an Emergency Preparedness Plan and review it with everyone in your family.
- Have an adequate supply of propane in your tank.
- In the event that a hurricane threatens your safety, you should shut off the gas. Watch a video from Suburban Propane.
- Listen to you local authorities or television and radio stations to determine if you need to evacuate your home.
- After the hurricane danger passes and it is safe to do so, check the entire area of downed power lines, damaged gas lines or damage to your propane tank.
- Never use outdoor propane appliances indoors or in enclosed areas, particularly during a power outage.
- Inspect your propane appliances for water or other damages, if it is safe to do so.
- Schedule a time for a qualified service technician from Suburban Propane to perform a complete inspection of your propane system.
- Exercise good judgment.
