Ameren Illinois Promoting Generator Safety ahead of Winter Storm Season

ILLINOIS (WBC/DANA COMM.) — Power outages can happen any time of year but a temporary power option that many choose during these outages is a generator. Ameren Illinois is highlighting the importance to know how to use a generator safely.

Communications Executive Brian Bretsch says Ameren wants to make sure customers install and use their generators properly.

Bretsch says homeowners should exercise extreme caution when handling fuel for portable generators. Do not attempt to refuel your generator while it is running. Let the generator cool down before adding fuel.  Call Ameren at 1-800-755-5000 if you plan to install a back-up generator.
