Generator Safety

3/5/2020 (Permalink)

Having a generator for power outages is a great resource, however while using a generator you should practice the following safety tips provided by the American Red Cross. 

1. Install CO alarms on every level of your home and outside sleeping areas to provide early warnings of CO build up. 

2. Opening doors and windows or using fans will not prevent carbon monoxide from building up in your home. If you feel dizzy or sick while using a generator get fresh air immediately. 

3. Avoid electrocution. Keep the generator dry and do not use it in wet conditions. If it is wet outside it is okay to use under an open canopy like structure to keep it dry. 

4. Never use a generator inside a home, garage, basement, crawlspace or any partially or fully inclosed area.
