Propane is an extremely safe fuel, but as you already know, an earthquake changes everything: gas lines and storage tanks can be damaged, resulting in unsafe conditions.
With that in mind, here are a few recommendations from your friends at Allied Propane Service:
- Keep the area around your storage tank clear of any debris, and remove any tall or heavy objects nearby that could potentially fall and damage your tank.
- It’s a good idea to anchor or brace your tank to keep it from shifting; we can do this for you.
- We can install a seismic valve that will automatically shut off the gas flow to your house during an earthquake.
