Alternate Power Safety Tips for Wheat Ridge?

1/19/2022 (Permalink)

Snow is falling outside a window. Our technicians respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Jefferson County.

SERVPRO® of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen wants everyone in Wheat Ridge to stay safe during a winter storm. Here are some tips from the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for using alternate methods for lighting, and generator and other appliances safely:

Light your home safely.

Use generators and other appliances safely.
  • Generators should be located at least 20 feet from any window, door, or vent and in a space where rain and snow will not reach them
  • Protect yourself from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning by installing a battery-operated CO detector
  • Never use generators, gas or charcoal grills, camp stoves, or similar devices inside your home, in basements, in garages, or near windows. The fumes are deadly.
  • Plug in appliances to the generator using individual heavy-duty, outdoor-rated extension cords
  • Do not use the generator or appliances if they are wet
  • Do not store gasoline indoors where the fumes could ignite
