Many households run generators during a power outage and homeowners should take extra precautions to avoid injury. Generators powered by gasoline or diesel fuel can produce potentially deadly levels of carbon monoxide and should be operated only in well-ventilated, covered, unheated areas. Never use them inside.
Homeowners should always practice extreme caution when using a generator to power the home.
Make sure the generator is listed by an independent testing organization, such as Underwriters Laboratory.
Carrollton Utilities will flush fire hydrants on the city of Carrollton water system, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 17. Hydrant flushing is done each year at this time to remove all sediment in the mains and to make sure all hydrants are working properly. Carrollton Utilities suggests that residents should not wash laundry while crews are flushing the hydrants as some staining could occur.
