In light of the recent severe weather, State Fire Marshal Brian S. Geraci is reminding Marylanders about the life-saving precautions to take when operating portable generators:

  • It is important to remember to NEVER use portable generators inside a home, garage or shed. Generators should be used OUTSIDE ONLY.
  • While in operation, portable generators should be in a well ventilated area away from all doors, windows and vent openings.
  • Regardless of whether your garage is attached or detached to the house, do not use the generator inside of it.
    • Even opening the garage door does not make this a safe option.
    • Remember to allow the generator time to cool down before refueling, and never refuel while in use. Fuel must be stored in a proper, approved container that is outside of all living areas.
    • Make sure to have working Carbon Monoxide detectors properly installed in your home.
