Summer can bring bring severe weather to our area, and it’s always a good idea to review ways to keep safe. Here are tips to help you do that.

  • Be sure your home has carbon monoxide detectors. Carbon monoxide is a deadly poison that’s both odorless and invisible.
  • Never use outdoor propane equipment like portable grills or stoves inside your home.
  • If you ever smell propane in your home, leave your house immediately and call for help.
  • Create an emergency plan and discuss it with everyone in your family. This plan should include instructions for how to turn off propane systems.
  • Prepare a disaster supply kit, which should include several days of water and canned food supplies, along with a can opener, extra clothes, blankets, flashlights, medications, batteries and supplies for your pets. You should also have a battery-powered radio.
  • If you have a portable generator, never operate it in your basement or garage. Always run a generator outdoors in a well ventilated area. Wilson sells, installs and services stand-by generators that come on when the power goes out.
