Keep Your Family, Pets Safe When Using Generators During Power Outages
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – As California continues to recover from wildfires, FEMA urges everyone who experiences a power outage to be safe when using portable generators.
Do not use generators inside your home, garage, basement, crawlspace or any partially enclosed area. Keep them outside of your living spaces and away from doors, windows and vents that could allow carbon monoxide to come inside. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that could kill you, your family and your pets.
Be sure to check on your family and neighbors who may be using generators to remind them about the importance of keeping generators outside of their home and other enclosed spaces.
If you are using a generator for any reason, this information can help keep you and your household safe:Place generators at least 20 feet away from your home, downwind away from open doors, windows and vents. Before refueling it, turn off the generator and let it cool for 15-20 minutes. Never try to power the house wiring by plugging the generator into a wall outlet; instead, use a heavy-duty, outdoor extension cord to plug appliances into generators. Do not use generators in rain or wet conditions. Place a fire extinguisher nearby. Get a carbon monoxide monitor for your home.
For additional information about generators and carbon monoxide:Watch this generator safety video from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and FEMA that includes American Sign Language: youtube.com/watch?v=n7GIOzABRHA. Learn about carbon monoxide from the CDC at cdc.gov/co/ or call 800-232-4636.

- SoCal Water District Receives $2.8M to Protect Infrastructure After an Earthquake
SoCal Water District Receives $2.8M to Protect Infrastructure After an Earthquake
OAKLAND, Calif. – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has granted $2.8 million to the Moulton Niguel Water District to seismically retrofit 18 potable water storage tanks.
All 18 tanks in Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, Laguna Niguel and Aliso Viejo are near active earthquake fault zones in Orange County, making them susceptible to shaking loose from their foundations, rupturing or potentially sliding down hillsides during a large incident.
Completion of the project will bring the equipment into compliance with current seismic codes and standards, which will significantly reduce the risk of tank damage and ensure water remains drinkable for 172,000 homes and businesses after a seismic event.
The $3.7 million project includes a $2.8 million grant from FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), with the remaining $928,000 from non-federal sources.
FEMA’s HMGP helps states, territories, federally-recognized tribes, local communities, and certain private, non-profit organizations become more resilient to potential infrastructure damage and reduce future disaster costs. In the past 31 years, FEMA has invested nearly $1.4 billion to reduce disaster risk in California.
- FEMA Fire Management Assistance Granted for the Pinehaven Fire
FEMA Fire Management Assistance Granted for the Pinehaven Fire
OAKLAND, Calif. – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has authorized the use of federal funds to assist the state of Nevada in combating the Pinehaven Fire burning in Washoe County.
On Nov. 17, 2020, the state of Nevada submitted a request for a Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG) for the Pinehaven Fire. At the time of the request, the fire threatened approximately 20,000 homes in and around the communities of Caughlin Ranch, Skyline and Riverview in the Reno area. The fire also threatened around 500 businesses, power lines, telecommunications infrastructure and the Galena River Watershed.
The FEMA regional administrator approved the state’s request on Nov. 17, 2020, as the fire threatened to become a major incident.
FMAGs provide federal funding for up to 75 percent of eligible firefighting costs. The Disaster Relief Fund provides allowances for FMAGs through FEMA to assist in fighting fires that threaten to cause major disasters. Eligible costs covered by FMAGs can include expenses for field camps, equipment use, materials, supplies and mobilization, and demobilization activities attributed to fighting the fire.
