07/09/2005 ~ With widespread power outages affecting Keys Energy Services (KEYS) customers, many have begun to use portable generators. KEYS offers the following tips to ensure your safety and the safety of KEYS employees who are working to restore your power:

- Read all instructions carefully and abide by the manufacturer’s recommendations.

- Locate the generator in a well-ventilated area, preferably outside your home. Carbon monoxide, a by-product of gasoline-powered generators, can be deadly in enclosed areas.

- Plug appliances directly into the generator. Limit the number of appliances you plug into your generator. The generator has a recommended wattage, make sure the wattage of all appliances does not exceed the rated wattage of the generator.

- Avoid connecting the generator to your home’s wiring at the circuit breaker. This can cause electricity from the generator to back-feed into KEYS lines, endangering our employees and possibly even your neighbors.
