Four Generator Safety Tips

If not used properly, generators can be dangerous.

| January/February 2009

Choosing the Right Generator  

Generators offer great convenience during power outages, but if not used properly, they are dangerous. Follow these guidelines for safe use:

  • Store gasoline outside your home – away from living quarters and livestock barns;
  • Always use a generator outside, never indoors or in an attached garage;
  • Protect a generator from rain and snow while stored and during use;
  • Use heavy-duty, outdoor-rated extension cords sized to match the power load and the length of the cord.
