EXTREME WEATHER AND NATURAL DISASTERS

Keep your home and family safe

Follow these safety tips when weather emergencies threaten your home and your propane system. If you have any questions, contact North Cascades Propane.  

  • If evacuating your home, turn off the service valve on your propane tank and the shutoff valve on all propane appliances.

  • Secure propane equipment, tanks, and cylinders by tying them to stationary objects. Contact your local office and ask them to move your tank to higher ground if time allows.  

  • If your propane tank becomes dislodged or you believe there is a gas leak in your home, evacuate as soon as possible. Contact North Cascades Propane from a safe location. Do not call from the vicinity of the suspected leak.
