Gas fired water heaters

An episode which just aired on PBS here in the Seattle are shows Norm helping a couple in Indianapolis Indiana install a water filtration system in the basement of their home. Next to the filtration stsyem stands a Natural Gas fired water heater which is not strapped and secured to the wall This poses a real danger to the family and contents of this home since it could shift and dislodge from is current pedestal location leading to a fire and possibliy an explosion.

Strapping is generally not required or needed in areas which are not subject to seismic activity.
