After the Event

Top Tips

  • If you are using a generator to provide power after a storm, be cautious with transporting and storing gasoline.
  • Before filling a generator with gasoline, make sure the generator has cooled down first. Clean up any spills promptly and discard clean-up materials properly. 
  • Don't siphon gasoline from a container by using your mouth. You could accidently ingest the fuel, causing damage to the esophagus or stomach. Gasoline fumes can damage your lungs.

  • To remove gasoline from a car, lawn mower or boat, use a siphon pump. Many home improvement and marine supply stores will sell hand pumps that can do the job.
