Generator Safety


Using a generator when the power goes out is a great option, but safety should be the top priority for both you and utility workers. 

There are two kinds of generators, portable and permanent. Portable generators are intended to provide power to an extension cord which is then plugged directly into an appliance or piece of equipment. Permanent generators are wired directly into the electrical system of your home.
