At Beaudry Oil & Propane, safety is a top priority when it comes to both our customers and our employees. We take safety seriously and will never take shortcuts that would put you or your family at risk.
Propane (also called liquefied petroleum gas, LP gas, or LPG) is a liquid fuel stored under pressure and, in most cases, vaporized to a gas before leaving the tank. Propane is flammable when mixed with oxygen (air), and many sources can ignite it, including open flames, smoking materials, electrical sparks, and static electricity.
When used properly, propane is a safe, economical, clean-burning, and versatile fuel. The Propane Education & Research Council has compiled safety rules and information that you should share with your family to keep everyone safe and to reduce the risk of serious and potentially fatal injury, fire, or explosion. Download the brochure or read below.
Propane smells like rotten eggs, a skunk’s spray, or a dead animal. Some people may not be able to smell propane easily, including older adults who may have a dulled sense of smell, those with a medical condition, or those who experience the effects of medication, alcohol, tobacco, or drugs.
On rare occasions, propane can lose its odor. Several things can cause this, including:
Because of the possibility of odor loss or issues with your sense of smell, you should respond immediately to even a faint odor of gas.
In some circumstances, you may not smell a propane leak. Propane gas detectors sound an alarm when sensing propane in the air. These detectors can provide an additional measure of security; consider purchasing one or more for your home.
Follow these guidelines for propane gas detectors:
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and toxic gas. This dangerous gas is produced when any fuel burns, including propane. High levels of CO can come from appliances that are not operating correctly or from a ventilation system or chimney that becomes blocked.
CO CAN BE DEADLY! High levels of CO can make you dizzy or sick (see below). In extreme cases, brain damage or death can occur.
Symptoms of CO Poisoning
If you suspect CO is present, act immediately!
LIGHTING PILOT LIGHTS
If a pilot light repeatedly goes out or is very difficult to light, there may be a safety problem. Do not try to fix the problem yourself. We strongly recommend that only a qualified service technician lights any pilot light that has gone out.
You take the risk of starting a fire or of an explosion if you light a pilot light yourself. Carefully follow all manufacturer’s instructions and warnings before attempting to light the appliance’s pilot light.
Don’t run out of gas. Serious safety hazards, including fire or explosion, can result.

Wanted to let you know what a great job your service guy did when installing my tank. He did a professional job and was very pleasant to work with. He was especially patient with my kids who were buzzing around, which could have frustrated or bothered other service people.
We are grateful that your driver took the time to check over everything before he left. He deserves a raise.
I wanted to let you know how great of a job your driver did and how nice he was. I was very happy with the service he provided.
My father-in-law’s driveway wasn’t plowed and we could see the driver had a hard time struggling with the hose and he filled it anyways. We were really impressed with your company that you would still fill in that situation. Keep up the good work!
I was very happy with your service.
Your driver was very pleasant to deal with and a hard worker. I am glad that I switched companies.

Please pass on my appreciation to the Milaca staff for same day service! Only ½ hour, wonderful!
We were very pleased with Beaudry Propane especially our driver. He went above and beyond the call of duty for us and we want his employers to know that.
Your driver did a good job and worked hard, all with a smile. Did a good job even with temps in the 90’s.
The driver we had was great. He was very friendly.
Our driver came as scheduled and was willing to help any way he could. I couldn’t have asked for a more decent person. He was professional, neat and knowledgeable. I couldn’t believe how fast he had his job done. Again, thank you!
Your driver had to wade through a lot of snow to get to our tank, I appreciate his effort. I also appreciate the honoring of the pre-buy pricing.
