NW Natural continually coordinates with other regional organizations and agencies as part of a statewide earthquake preparedness effort. Below ground, we've modernized our pipeline system with flexible materials that can better withstand land movement like an earthquake. Above ground, we staff a gas control room 24/7, 365 days a year, to monitor our system—and we have a backup control facility at another location as an extra precaution.
Emergency preparedness doesn't stop with us. You can take additional precautions with your natural gas appliances and equipment, too.
