Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Camping season is in full swing and propane is an ideal energy source because of its portability, safety, and long shelf life. With some of the incidents that have been reported in the news recently, the CPA issued the news release – Safety tips for an enjoyable and fun camping season – to remind Canadians about the safety protocols when using propane for campsite activities and equipment.

The CPA also encouraged Canadians to support local and save the environment by promoting refillable five-pound cylinders, an eco-friendly alternative to one-pound cylinders which also support local propane providers. And while some manufacturers are selling refillable one-pound cylinder kits, the CPA also stated that it is illegal by Canadian law to refill cylinders without proper training.

The news release was accompanied by a new fact sheet that the CPA has created: SAFETY TIPS: Handling and Transporting Propane Cylinders. We encourage you to download the fact sheet or copy the link to share with your customers.
