Additional Tips:

  1. Never use a portable generator inside a home or business. It emits carbon monoxide, which can be deadly. Keep it outside, away from windows and doors, so the fumes don’t come in.
  2. Remain indoors, if possible, as there are numerous downed power lines in our area that pose a significant safety risk.
