In many emergencies (i.e. house fire) active utilities can make the situation much worse. A spark free valve wrench is needed to shut off gas lines, water pipes, etc. It's also designed to break through doors and other obstructions as well as dig through debris.
The wrench won't rust or spark.
This gas and water shut off wrench is very handy for emergency situations. Years ago we were in a C.E.R.T training and at the end they gave us some gear. This wrench was included. They explained that urban fires and other disasters often require action to protect against additional destruction.
We recommend keeping one of these in your Stage 3 emergency bin. It's heavy so it doesn't belong in a go-bag. However, it should be handy just in case.
