The MPGA is pleased to offer the Propane Emergency Response Network (PERN) to all Michigan Fire Departments and other First Responders.
PERN is a network of regionalized propane teams, staffed with expert on-call propane personnel who are available to advise and assist First Responders.
PERN provides direct services solely for propane emergencies only. To activate this service, the on-site commander of the incident must call our toll-free number: 866-880-2564 and:
- state name and level of authority
- describe incident/emergency
- provide location, including street address, intersection and city
- give contact phone number
Within 10 minutes, a team from the PERN network will respond to the scene in a specially equipped trailer that’s designed to handle any type of propane emergency.
