Generator Safety

Generators should be used in well ventilated
locations outside away from all doors, windows
and vent openings.

Never use a generator in an attached garage,
even with the door open.

Place generators so that exhaust fumes can’t
enter the home through windows, doors or other
openings in the building.

Make sure to install carbon monoxide (CO) alarms
in your home. Follow manufacturer’s instructions
for correct placement and mounting height.

Turn off generators and let them cool down
before refueling. Never refuel a generator while it is hot.

Store fuel for the generator in a container
that is intended for the purpose and is correctly
labeled as such. Store the containers outside of living areas.

Get Ahead of the Winter Freeze

Have your furnace inspected and serviced.

Have chimneys and vents cleaned and inspected.

Use only dry seasoned wood in a fireplace or wood stove.

Have a covered metal container for disposal of cooled ashes.

The ash container must be kept 10 feet from any structure.

Make sure all portable space heaters have an automatic shut-off.

Plug portable space heaters directly into an outlet.

Test all smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms.

Fire Safety Tips
Don't run extension cords under rugs or carpets.

Replace frayed electrical cords before they burn or cause a fire.

Keep combustibles away from the furnace.

An electrical outlet or switch that is unusually hot to the touch may indicate a dangerous wiring condition.

Always extinguish the fire in a wood stove before leaving the house and before going to bed.

An electric blanket should not be tucked in at the sides. It may overheat and start a fire.

Unplug your hair dryer or any other small appliance in the bathroom when not in use.
