PG&E recommends that those who evacuate their buildings due to flooding should shut off their gas and electricity if they know how and can do so safely. This may prevent gas and electric controls and systems from being damaged.
- Turn off all gas appliances, or
- Turn off the appliance gas shutoff valve at each appliance.
- If customers are unable to shut off the gas to appliances, they should turn off their gas service shutoff valve normally located near the gas meter.
- Turn off the electric supply to the entire premises at the main electric switch. Warning: Never touch the electric switch or circuit breaker with wet hands or while standing in water.
