Check Your Generator
Now is a good time to check your generators and make sure you have everything working in compliance with the manufacturer's guidelines. Always operate a generator at a safe distance from your home. This goes for other types of alternate heating systems.
Give the crews some space if you see them at work. Slow down and move over is the safest thing to do. Change lanes if you can and be alert.
As we approach winter in the coming months and expect storms to affect service, these resources are an easy and convenient way to stay current on outages and conditions.
