Hurricane Isaias is still expected to move close to the Jersey Shore on Tuesday as a tropical storm, according to the latest forecast track from the National Hurricane Center. In preparation, Middletown Fire Prevention would like to remind residents of the following rules when using a generator as the tropical storm-force winds and potential for heavy rain could knock out power.
- 10 feet of clearance is required from any structure
- Use UL listed extension cords
- Ensure carbon monoxide alarms are functioning in all businesses/homes while using a generator
Contact Fire Marshal Buddy Skelly at 732-615-2272 with any questions.
