Propane patio heaters for businesses operating outside

With winter approaching, the City of Sacramento has acquired nearly 400 tower propane patio heaters to provide for free to city of Sacramento businesses that have increased their outdoor operations due to the pandemic and public-health orders.

The City of Sacramento will be doing a final distribution of outdoor propane heaters on Friday, Dec. 18 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. These heaters are available to all for-profit businesses within the City of Sacramento excluding professional offices and home-based businesses. 

The business must have a physical location within the City of Sacramento. Only one heater will be provided per business. 

Interested businesses must: 

  • Bring a copy of their current City of Sacramento Business Operation Tax License (BOTC) 
  • Print, sign and bring the City’s liability waiver. The form needs to be signed by an authorized representative and picked up by someone who is authorized to do so. 
  • Wear a mask and stay in the car upon arrival. Heaters will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis. Staff will verify the above information and place the heater in your vehicle for you.
