Hagerstown, MD (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
As Winter Storm Saturn approaches the East Coast, business and homeowners are preparing for devastating accumulations of up to two8 feet and possible power outages caused by heavy, wet snow. To help prepare propane service customers for the heavy swatch of snow on the way, leading propane gas supplier ThompsonGas extends these winter storm tips:
- Check your propane tank to ensure you have enough propane to last during and after the storm. Your tank is considered full at 80%. A propane tank is in IMMEDIATE NEED of refilling at 20%.
- Check your back-up generator to ensure your propane gas service level is adequate. This will ensure that you won’t lose power during the storm.
- Keep an extra supply of propane on hand, in case your power goes out longer than expected.
- Shovel a path to your propane tank, driveway and sidewalks, and mark the location of your tank with a flag, pole or stake so delivery drivers can make a quick and safe propane delivery.
As with any severe snowstorm, keep non-essential travel to a minimum. Make sure that you and your family know what propane smells like in case of a leak. Never store or place a propane cylinder indoors or in an enclosed area like a basement or shed. If you need a propane delivery, contact ThompsonGas immediately.
