Jan 20, 2010, 06:00 ET from Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- In continuing efforts to keep Pennsylvania families safe, the Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association is highlighting the 'Power Outage' consumer safety module available at www.papropane.com

This easy-to-use online tool will walk you and your family through important steps to take before and during a power outage this winter. Some examples of these tips include:

  • Never use a power source or inspect an appliance while standing in water
  • Never use a portable generator in an enclosed area, such as a basement, garage or tent
  • Know how and where to turn off your Propane

PAPGA recommends that homeowners schedule a time for a qualified service technician to perform a complete inspection after power returns. This service would include a leak test and re-lighting pilot lights. To find a professional in your neighborhood, log on to www.usepropane.com/find

"On behalf of all our marketer members across Pennsylvania, we hope these messages help families live safely and comfortably while managing their home energy," said Dan Messett, Marketing Chair for PAPGA.
