FPL: ELECTRICAL SAFETY -- GENERATORS

 FPL: ELECTRICAL SAFETY -- GENERATORS
 MIAMI, Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- If you are using a portable


generator, Florida Power & Light 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.
