Using appliances that are powered by natural gas is a way of life for many families, but the gas that provides so much convenience can become dangerous during disasters like fires and earthquakes. An earthquake shut-off valve is a safety solution your family can’t afford to be without.

Watch this video to see how earthquake shut-off valves work. When a line ruptures, the shut-off valve automatically reduces the flow of gas. In the case of fire, these valves can also completely stop gas flow, which can help to prevent explosions.
