The games and activities on this website are designed to teach Kids:

‘Millions of Pennsylvanians use propane to heat their homes and water, plus clothes drying and cooking”, said Shelby Metzger, Executive Director of PAPGA. “Our members believe that good safety habits should be adopted at a young age, and that the more children and teens know about propane, the fewer preventable accidents will occur.”
The Propane Kids website was created by the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC). Consumers can access additional Safety Educational Resources at www.propanesafety.com
The Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association is a member-focused trade association providing services that communicate, educate and promote the propane industry in Pennsylvania. The association was formed in 1947 to offer opportunities to learn through training and networking with peers, and to aid with legislative issues that contribute to operating a safe and successful industry.
