Generator Safety During Severe Weather

4/8/2020 (Permalink)

Having a generator handy during a storm can be a God sent however if the proper safety tips are not taken, it could be deadly. Always remember the following:

  • A generator, stove, grill, propane, natural gas or charcoal grill should NEVER be used inside your home, garage, basement or even partially enclosed area.
  • Keep your generator dry by using a tarp or open canopy. Try to keep the surface dry. This will help you to avoid electrocution. Do not touch a generator with wet hands.
  • Always be mindful of Carbon Monoxide buildup in the home. Opening windows and doors and using fans will not prevent CO poisoning. Sometimes exhaust fumes can not be smelt but you can still be exposed to CO. If you start to feel dizzy, weak or sick while using a generator, go outside and get fresh air immediately.
  • CO Alarms should be installed in central locations on every level of your home or business and also outside sleeping areas to provide early warnings.
