The Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association and Bedford Valley Petroleum is asking people who heat with propane to take some simple steps to keep their families safe and warm this winter.
Propane delivery trucks are very wide, so please clear your driveway to a width of 12 feet to allow for access. Also, don’t forget to
clear a path to your tank so the delivery person can get to it.
Check your flue and vents for damage or blockage caused by drifting snow, and clean them frequently to reduce the chance of carbon monoxide poisoning.
You should also establish a regular delivery schedule so you don’t run out of Propane.
