Safety

At Econogas, we take propane safety very seriously. Before delivering propane to you, our Owner-operators must undergo extensive classroom and hands-on training. We’re also committed to making sure our Customers understand the product that fuels the appliances in and around their home or business. The following e-learning modules are intended to help you better understand propane, the best practices for its handling and use, and your propane system.

Call before you dig

 

Before you dig on your property, please call the Diggers Hotline (811) to help you find the underground lines of all types located on your property.

 

The size and location of your gas system may require compliance with federal, state, or local laws. For example, underground lines that run under a public place may require that you register with the Digger’s Hotline/”One-Call” Program in your state. Consult the authorities in your state and the Office of Pipeline Safety.
