Portable Generator

We are living in the Pacific Northwest and in this part of world, portable generators come in handy during power outage.
Here are some safety tips when using them:
1. Never plug a generator into an electrical outlet as it could feed electricity back into power lines, endangering the safety of the crews working to restore power.
2. Only use generators to run individual appliances, using a UL- approved extension cord.
3. Use generators only in well ventilated areas and away from windows, doors or where deadly exhaust fumes could enter the house.
