A major concern for Southern California residents has always been earthquake safety. All water heaters in our region must have a restraint system installed to provide resistance to movement in an earthquake.
For properties in more volatile seismic zones in California, earthquake valves or emergency gas shut off valves have been a requirement for quite some time. Only recently, however, have insurance companies become more stringent in their enforcement of requiring properties in the San Diego area to have these safety devices installed. Installed near the gas meter, these valves are activated by a seismic disturbance and shut off the gas supply at the meter. This would prevent many fires and gas explosions after an earthquake, therefore ensuring your safety.
