You can do many things to keep your home and family safe during a major earthquake. Preparing for such an event is important. If you are in an earthquake prone area, you may want to install an earthquake valve. PG&E does not recommend any brand of earthquake valve or install them, but if you decide you want to install one, PG&E will turn off and restore your gas to ensure a safe installation.
