Storm guidance during COVID-19
The Louisiana Department of Health released important information about COVID safety measures during a hurricane.
We know many of you may be dusting off your generators for the first time all year. Please remember:
- Portable generators should never be used indoors. This includes in a garage, carport, basement, crawl space or other enclosed or partially enclosed area, even those with ventilation.
- Gas-powered generators produce an exhaust of carbon monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. CO inhalation can rapidly lead to full incapacitation or death. Opening windows or doors or using fans will not prevent the build-up of CO. If you start to feel sick, dizzy or weak while using a generator, get to fresh air IMMEDIATELY. Be sure to place the generator away from doors, windows and vents that could allow CO to come indoors.
- Keep the generator dry and do not use in rain or wet conditions. Protect the generator from moisture by operating it on a dry.
- Learn about CDC guidance on safe generator use.
