DO YOU HAVE A GENERATOR?
Do you have a generator? Many people keep a generator for emergency situations when the power goes out, but did you know a generator can be dangerous to our linemen -- those who are out restoring your power?
Members with portable generators should make sure the generators are installed only by a qualified electrician, are placed outdoors, and are totally isolated from electric cooperative lines. Generators that are not properly installed can back-feed current onto electric cooperative lines, endangering linemen working to restore power.
Make it a safe winter by being prepared and taking the necessary precautions to keep you, and us, safe.
