Fire is major hazard after earthquake

!John O’Sullivan, president of QuakeKoso Canada Inc., said the single biggest hazard posed by a large earthquake comes from broken gas lines and the ensuing fires. His device, which costs about $200, automatically shuts off gas to a house, condo, townhouse or any building in the event of an earthquake that’s severe enough to lead to rupture gas lines.  - Martin van den Hemel
