When it comes to disaster preparedness, always start with a good plan. There are many considerations to take into account when preparing or a disaster, which include:
When it comes to using portal generators, safety should be your number one priority. Each time disaster strikes people are killed due to improper use of their portable generator. If you are using a portable generator after a disaster, always make sure to place it at least 20 feet from any doors, windows or openings. NEVER use your generator inside of your home or even garage. Battery operated CO2 detectors are also recommended to monitor the safety in your home. In the event, your CO2 detectors alarm, immediately leave your home and contact 911 for assistance.
