Preparing For Colder Weather

Colder Weather

Roger Kreifels
Propane Manager

As quickly as the summer months flew by, the cooler weather will be here before we know it. Some of you may be sad to see summer disappear into those earlier everyday sunsets, but fall has always been my favorite time of the year. While the temperature is starting to get cooler, now is a great time to get prepared for the heating season if you are using propane.  Just like you make sure your furnace is in tip-top shape, you also need to make sure you and everyone in your home or business understands how to keep themselves safe and what to do in the event of an emergency.

At Farmers Cooperative, safety will always be our number one priority. To help keep you and your family safe, we have developed a safety quiz available on our website: The questionnaire covers important things you and your family need to know when using propane, so it is extremely important you go through the list together to ensure everyone knows and understands each item listed.

If there is anything on the questionnaire you do not understand, it is extremely important you contact us immediately at 800-473-4579 so we can answer any questions you may have.

As an incentive to ensure you understand propane safety, we are randomly giving away 25 combination carbon monoxide/combustible gas detectors to anyone who fills out the propane safety quiz and returns it to us by October 31, 2020. Please visit our website for more information on how to submit your completed quiz.

This year, combustible gas detectors are more important than ever due to loss of smell being a symptom of COVID-19. We highly recommend purchasing a detector if you aren’t one of the lucky recipients of our giveaway and installing it in your home. They are available as combination units with carbon monoxide detection or sold separately and are available in most hardware and home improvement stores.

I want to thank you all for your business and we look forward to servicing you in the future.
