Backup electric generators can be a valuable part of your emergency preparedness plan when a power outage occurs. Power outages are common during disasters and are happening more frequently now due to Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS). Power outages can last hours or several days. Having a portable backup generator can help turn the lights back on, keep appliances running, and power essential equipment and electronic devices.
