Emergency Gas Shut Off

  • Know where your gas meter is before an emergency occurs.
  • Have a wrench stored in a specific location where it will be available.
  • If you smell or hear gas escaping after an earthquake or any emergency, turn off your gas at the meter as shown.
  • Use a crescent wrench and give it a quarter turn in either direction so that it runs crosswise on the pipe. The line is now closed.

Contact the Long Beach Energy Resources Department at (562) 570-5700 to have your gas service restored.
