The First Rule is to Always Turn to the Right in a Clockwise Motion to Turn off a Valve.
Here's Dwight over by the Gas Line. I've taken a bunch of shots so you can easily recognize this are outside of your own house. (By the way, note how the Satellite Dish is in a nice, sheltered position.)
See the Two Holes in the Third Picture? To Turn Off the Gas, you will need to Turn the Valve Clockwise until the Two Holes Match Up. You'll need to use a Crescent Wrench or Pipe Wrench for this, so be sure to have one handy -- perhaps by the Front Entry or over by the Gas-line itself.
(Odd little note: Aidan, when he was 3 years old , loved his Crescent Wrench so much that he held it like a baby when he was watching T.V.! Now that's the Son of a Builder!)
You would need to Turn Off the Gas if anyone is ever working on the Gasline (the holes are there so that you can lock in in an Off Position while the work is being done).
If you ever suspect a Gas Leak -- you might smell the gas in the house. Call the Gas Company and go and Shut off the Gas. Stay out of the House until they get there.
If there's a Fire in your house and you can safely get to the Gas-line without any possibility of you getting hurt, run over and Shut Off the Gas.
