In an effort to safeguard citizens and government facilities, the City of Mission Viejo installed seismic gas shutoff valves at all City facilities with gas.
The valves will interrupt the gas supply to the building when a magnitude 5-6.0 earthquake is detected. When determined safe, staff will manually reset the valves. This proactive measure will protect the buildings and occupants in case of a large earthquake, drastically reducing the chance of a fire or explosion due to a ruptured gas line.
In an effort to better serve our senior population, the City has expanded its Senior Dial-A-Taxi Program to offer even more convenient locations to get folks where they need to go.
