On this episode of Tips & Tools, BEMC Energy Insider Fitz Hall talks about generator safety. Nobody wants to be without power, but outages do occur, especially during extreme weather events. And when they occur, a generator is handy for keeping your family comfortable while our line technicians work to restore your power. But generators are not without risk and it’s critical that you understand how to use one properly for the safety of you and your family.
This video is not intended to be a replacement for the owner’s manual for your generator. Be sure to always read the owner’s manual and when in doubt, contact a licensed electrician for help. While you want to stay comfortable in your home during extended power outages, you should never sacrifice the safety of your family or yourself.
