THE #1 SELLING BRAND OF HOME BACKUP GENERATORS
PREPARE YOUR HOME AND FAMILY FOR SEVERE WEATHER
Create a Family Disaster Plan
- Decide ahead of time where to go if you are at home, school, work, outdoors, or in a car when severe weather hits.
- Agree with family members on a designated place to meet if separated. Include a place directly outside the home and in your city or neighborhood.
- Designate a friend or relative outside the area as your contact if you are separated.
Know the Difference Between a Watch and a Warning
- WATCH – Conditions for severe weather are possible in the specified area within 36 hours.
- WARNING – Severe weather conditions have been reported by spotters or radar and are expected in the area within 24 hours.
Inspect Home and Yard for Potential Hazards
- Remove outdoor items such as lawn furniture, trash cans, toys and hanging plants as they may become airborne during a storm.
- Trim or cut down weak trees and branches that could easily be broken off by high winds and damage homes.
- Keep rain gutters, outside stairwells, window wells, drain lines and down spouts clear to prevent flooding in high rains.
Protect Your Home's Openings
- Protect or cover windows, entry doors, sliding glass doors, garage doors and gable end vents.
Secure Backup Power
- Flashlights cannot power refrigerators and candles are fire hazards.
- The American Red Cross suggests that permanently installed stationary home generators are better suited for providing backup power to the home than portable generators.
A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items.
