Water is gushing from the ceiling!  You're  in a panic looking for the main water shut-off. It's an emergency! Does the baby sitter know how and where to shut off the water?

Knowing the location for utility shut-offs prior to the emergency will save precious time for you, the baby sitter, the fire department and may reduce damage cost.

The fire department recommends labeling all emergency shut-off's with easy to read signage. Printing and posting the shut-off signs displayed below makes a fun project for kids or grandkids, and teaches them the locations for each.  Good signage also minimizes the mistake of turning off the wrong valve.

 

If you shut-off the natural gas or propane gas

 NEVER turn it back on

Call a qualified person or the gas company for that task.

 

Tape the sign to a section of cardboard and using a string, hang each sign close to the shut-off valve.

Right Tightens - Left Loosens: Exercise (turn off and on) your water shut-off valve annually or more often to maintain ease of operation.
