With natural disasters and other emergencies seemingly becoming more and more frequent, having an emergency plan and kit in place is a smart way to be prepared.

Reach out to Generator Technologies Inc. today to learn more. 

Items on Your Emergency Checklist

Your emergency checklist is your way to stay prepared. Things to prioritize when creating your emergency plan include:

  • Emergency plan—Answer the following questions as you think about preparing for an emergency:
    • What emergencies might your family face?
    • If you are not home at the time of an emergency, where will your family meet?
    • What will you need in the event of an emergency?
  • Put together your emergency kit—Your kit should include the following at the very least:
    • Non-perishable food
    • Water
    • First-aid kit
    • Flashlights
    • Medications
    • Flashlight
  • Prepare your home—Make sure you know your home well and that it’s prepared for an emergency by:
    • Locating all of your water, gas, and electrical shut-off valves
    • Keeping your home insurance documents in a safe location
    • Putting together an emergency to-go kit with essential items you’ll need if you have to evacuate
    • Adding a safe room to your home if you can
    • Installing a backup power source and maintaining it regularly

The Value of a Standby Generator

In the event of an emergency where there is a loss of power, a standby generator provides an immediate, consistent source of power that will kick on automatically. A standby generator is connected directly to your home’s electrical system and can keep lights, appliances, and other crucial electronics and electricity-dependent systems running. 

Why Generator Maintenance Should Be a Top Priority

If you do have a standby generator on your property, maintaining it should be a top priority. Regular maintenance will help to ensure that your generator is free from common problems that can impair its function—the last thing that you want to have to worry about in the event of a blackout is a generator that doesn’t function how it’s supposed to. At Generator Technologies Inc., our team can guide you through generator maintenance or perform regular maintenance services.
