Stay Gas Safe After Floods

Stay Gas Safe after floods
The Palaszczuk Government has reminded flood-affected Queenslanders to be very careful using gas appliances and strictly follow all operating instructions on the appliances.
Minister for State Development and Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Dr Anthony Lynham said people often rely on gas appliances such as barbeques, refrigerators, hot water systems, portable gas cookers and lights when their home is inundated by floodwaters.
These gas appliances are safe if they are checked thoroughly before use, and the manufacturer’s operating instructions are followed closely.
Members of the public should ensure all gas work is carried out by a licensed gasfitter.
