In a power outage, a portable generator may be needed. But be careful - if not used properly, generators can cause carbon monoxide poisoning, 触电或火灾. If you run a portable generator in a power outage, follow these safety guidelines.
Generators produce high levels of carbon monoxide quickly. You cannot smell or see carbon monoxide. 它可能是致命的.
If you feel sick, dizzy, or weak while using a generator, get fresh air right away. If you feel seriously ill, get immediate medical attention. 不要耽延! Tell medical staff you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning. 如果你在室内生病, 让消防部门确定何时重新进入大楼是安全的.
Be sure your generator is rated for 240-volt loads, 还有120伏, if you hook up larger appliance like ranges, 井泵或干燥器.
Keep fresh gas in the tank. 定期运行发电机，这样当你需要它时，它就准备好了.
The meter box belongs to the customer. If it's damaged by weather or by any kind of accident, repair is the customer's responsibility. 根据规定，手机买球的app不能将电力连接到损坏的电表箱上.
We understand that customers can feel tremendous frustration at this restriction. 这是可以理解的——在焦急地等待电力恢复后, who wouldn't be frustrated by an even longer wait?
仍然, if your meter box (or the pole on top of it) is damaged, a professional electrician must repair it to code before we're allowed to restore your service.
