Earthquake Safety

Earthquake safety is a major concern for Southern California residents. All water heaters installed in our region must have a restraint system installed to provide resistance against movement in the unlikely event of an earthquake.

Earthquake valves or emergency gas shut off valves have long been a requirement for properties in more volatile seismic zones in California, but only recently have insurance companies become more stringent in their enforcement of requiring properties in the San Diego area to have these safety devices installed.

These valves are installed near the gas meter and a seismic disturbance will activate a system that shuts the gas supply off at the meter. These valves prevent fires and gas explosions after an earthquake ensuring your safety.
