Emergency Preparedness Safety Tips
Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) offers the following safety tips for preparing for emergency situations:
- Know where your gas meter is so that you can turn it off if you smell gas, hear gas leaking, or see signs of a leak. Be sure to turn your gas meter off ONLY if you have been advised that it is safe to do so. Keep a large adjustable wrench on hand with your emergency supplies.
- Strap your water heater to the wall studs in two places in order to help prevent it from moving or toppling in an earthquake. We at On Time Home Services Temecula can help you do this.
- Receive a home safety inspection to ensure that all appliances and safety devices are functioning properly. Make any needed repairs to your furnace and other gas appliances.
