Ensure everyone in your household knows where, how and when to turn off gas supply in case of evacuation.
Before you reconnect or turn on gas appliances, ensure all LPG or natural gas installations are checked by a licensed fitter.
Never use outdoor appliances such as butane cookers or BBQs indoors. They need adequate ventilation to operate safely - a build-up of gas can cause an explosion.
