Many households may have purchased a generator to use during power outages. These useful items can be extremely dangerous if used improperly, please follow these tips to avoid a tragedy.

  • Read the manual and abide by manufacturers recommendations.
  • Install CO detectors inside your home.
  • Avoid an overload by knowing the specifications of your generator.
  • Never run your generator in an enclosed space such as a basement or garage; generators should be operated away from homes so that the exhaust may safely vent, do not run a generator near a window or air intake.
  • Use appropriate power cords for your appliances, using a cord that is not rated for the appliance can result in a fire.
  • Use caution when refilling the generators fuel supply, the heat from the generator could ignite the fuels.
  • Allow the generator to cool before storing it after use, even if it is not running it can be hot enough to start a fire.
