How do I turn the water off in an emergency leak?

One of the things you need to know is that your house should have a water main shut off which should be located next to one of the walls. The best way to find it is to locate your water meter usually the main shut off will be aligned with the meter location. You have to look close to your wall, if this fails there is a shut off at the meter. To turn the water off at the meter you may need a special meter key/tool. You can always call the water department as well or your local plumber.
