How to Shut Off Your Gas in an Emergency

  • Know where your gas meter is before an emergency occurs.
  • Have a wrench stored in a specific location where it will be available.
  • If you smell or hear gas escaping after an earthquake or any emergency, turn
    off your gas at the meter as shown.
  • Use a crescent wrench and give it a quarter turn in either direction so that it
    runs crosswise on the pipe. The line is now closed.
