Safety Must Be Priorty When Using LP Gas

LP Gas is extremely versatile, used to provide fuel for outdoor cooking, life-saving energy in remote disaster zones, power for hot air balloons and rally cars. It even fired up the Olympic Flame that marked the culmination of the London 2012 celebrations. However, as flammable as natural gas, it must be used safely at all times and high profile stunts are absolutely no exception.

Every year the industry goes to great lengths to ensure LP Gas is used safely and we would not encourage anyone to try to copy the stunt or create any other homemade devices and connect them to LP Gas. All equipment used with LP Gas, from heaters to BBQs and domestic boilers, plus connectors and hoses, are specifically designed with the safe use of LP Gas in mind.

While the Colin Furze stunt has been promoted as headline-grabbing fun, we want to ensure that the public understands the risks and dangers of not using LP Gas safely and we would discourage any unconventional use without seeking expert advice from the LP Gas supplier to ensure safety is addressed as a priority. More information on the safe use of LP Gas is available via the Advice and Information section of the website.
