Meter Safety

Natural gas comes to your home from a service line and passes through a gas meter. The meter measures how much gas your home uses.

Don't tamper with or climb on gas meters. Don't cover them with anything, or tie animals to their pipes—it could be dangerous.

The main gas shut-off valve is usually located by your gas meter. Make sure an adult knows where to find this valve and how to shut it off in case of a gas leak or major damage to your home.
