AN EARTHQUKE HAPPENS WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT! BE PREPARED!
AUTOMATIC GAS SHUT-OFF VALVES aka Earthquake Valves: Automatic gas shut-off valves are an excellent way to ensure
that your gas is shut off in the case of a major earthquake. They are recommended by the Fire Department. In many cities in
California they are required to be installed when you sell your home or do more than a $10,000 remodel. With an automatic
valve your gas will be off even if you aren‘t home at the time. Contact your local gas company for more information
