Things to Remember
Be prepared just in case – Get to know where all of your appliance gas shutoff valves are located, including the main shutoff valve next to the gas meter. Brace your water heater adequately to prevent it from falling during an earthquake. Check the local building codes for more information.
Play it safe – Do not let children play around your gas appliances. They could accidentally start a stove or extinguish the pilot light, leaking gas.
Minimize the chance of a fire – Do not store flammable materials near any type of gas appliance or source of flame.
