Generator Safety

Winter is here and with that comes the threat of power outages. Please practice safe generator operation!


  • Never run a generator inside your home or garage. Deadly carbon monoxide fumes can build up.

  • Never try to power house wiring by plugging the generator into a wall outlet. It can lead to electrocution of utility workers or neighbors served by the same utility transformer.

  • Check out Power Outage information on our website.

Washington State Emergency Management Division has provided a couple of videos regarding generator operation and carbon monoxide poisoning. The links to these videos are:
