Protect your Property from Earthquakes

Protect your Property from Earthquakes

One of the most important tools you can have at your house is an Earthquake Survival Tool. Steve found this one at his local Home Depot for under $4. It is made of steel construction for strength and durability and made right here in the US. We highly recommend owning one of these, in case of an earthquake or any other disaster. You can keep it right on the gas meter itself. The tool makes it super easy to shut off the natural gas to your home. This inexpensive device could save your home and your family from unforeseen danger.

From the Home Depot Website:

“The Ready America Emergency Gas Shut-Off Wrench is a zinc-plated steel tool used for turning 1/2 in. and 3/4 in. shut-off valves on gas meters. The wrench can be stored on the gas meter with the included zip tie for quick access during an emergency and also includes light-reflective tape, making this tool easy-to-find in day or night. It’s simple, straight forward design allows for quick application to the gas shut-off valve without any adjustments.”

Protect your Property from Earthquakes

So one of the most important tools you can have in your house is an earthquake survival tool. I didn’t even know what the heck these were until recently. These tools can help you turn off your natural gas in case of an earthquake or natural disaster. Your natural gas will have one of two size turnoff valves and there’s one on each end of this tool, depending on the turnoff valve for your natural gas. So you use this to turn off the gas after a disaster or earthquake, and this could potentially save your house or lives.

So I highly recommend it. Believe it or not, this tool, which by the way is made in the United States of America, costs less than $4 at Home Depot. So I highly recommend it. It also comes with this handy hanger attachment, so you can keep it attached to the gas main. So anyways, I think this is a great idea. Go out and get yourself one. Be prepared and thanks for watching.
