Generator Safety Tips

Don't connect your generator directly to your home's wiring. This can be deadly to you and others.
Never plug a portable generator into a regular household outlet.
Don't overload the generator.
Use the correct power cords for the appliance load.
Don't store fuel indoors or try to refuel a generator while it's running.

Be safe

And be smart about using supplemental energy sources such as generators. Correctly wired into a home to provide automatic fail-over, they still require regular testing to make sure it’s power-outage ready. Consult a licensed electrical contractor to help you make the right decision for your home or business.
