COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Disaster victims who are temporarily living in travel trailers may be encountering propane fueled devices for the first time. For this reason, the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has put together some brief safety tips and informational points.
