FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT COMPANY ON ELECTRICAL SAFETY - GENERATORS

FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT COMPANY ON ELECTRICAL SAFETY - GENERATORS
 MIAMI, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- If you are using a portable generator, FPL asks that you read all instructions carefully and abide by the manufacturer's recommendations -- for your safety and the safety of FPL employees working to restore electricity to the FPL system.
 Specifically:
 -- Locate the generator in a well-ventilated area, preferably outside your home. Gasoline-powered generators produce carbon monoxide, which can be deadly in an enclosed area.
 -- Plug appliances directly into the generator. Do not exceed the recommended wattage noted on the generator. In other words, plug only a limited number of appliances into the generator and make sure that the wattage of each, when totaled, does not exceed the rated wattage of the generator.
 -- Use extension cords if necessary between the generator itself and the appliances you need to connect.
 -- Avoid connecting the generator to the home's main wiring at the circuit breaker.
 -- Improper use of generators can cause electricity to flow backwards into the power lines, endangering FPL workers or possibly even neighbors served by the same power line.
 -- If you have any doubts about how to properly use a portable electric generator, contact the manufacturer or a licensed electrician for assistance.
