propane safety

I drove a propane-powered school bus for 8 yrs; we had about 20 in the fleet. no fires or explosions!! A bus garage in central MN burned to the ground a few yrs ago; all the gasoline- powered buses exploded. none of the propane-powered bus tanks exploded, even though they all burned down to the chassis! Good training and awareness are essential! BTW, up here, propane can freeze in the fuel line, but right now , it's shorts weather-30*
