[ARCHIVED] Portable Generator Safety


Use portable generators outdoors in well-ventilated areas and a minimum 15' away from all doors, windows and vents.

Make sure you have carbon monoxide alarms in your home.

Do not use a generator in a wet area.  This can cause shock or electrocution.

Connect appliances to the generator with heavy-duty extension cords.

Do not fuel your generator when it is running.  Spilling gas on a hot engine can cause a fire.
