If you own a propane-powered home, one of your biggest responsibilities is to make sure that everyone in it knows what to do in a propane emergency – including, or maybe even especially, your children. But how do you make propane safety lessons “stick” with children so they will remember what to do in the event of an emergency?
Four ways to make propane safety accessible to children
Here are some ideas from our friends at PERC:
Make your child a “Safety Ranger” – Use this checklist to teach your kids which appliances in your Louisiana home use propane, along with essentials like where to find gas and CO (carbon monoxide) detectors, what propane smells like, and more.
Make a “family meeting place” sign – Designate a location a safe distance from your home where your family will meet in an emergency, then let your children make a sign for it. You can make your own, or you can use this template.
Hold a propane leak safety drill – Have your children imagine what would happen on the day of a gas leak so you can practice your safety plan together.
