Portable Generator Safety

Portable generators are useful during winter storms, but if not used safely they can cause injuries and death. Here are some guidelines:

  • 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.
