From tornadoes to floods and hurricanes, this year’s dramatic weather has demonstrated how power outages can further complicate an already challenging situation. Power outages resulting from a hurricane or other severe weather event can leave residents without power for hours and even days. More people than ever are turning to generators not only to protect their homes and families, but to ensure access to the many technologies, including cell phones and computers, that are playing increasingly important roles in our lives today.
Generators, such as those offered by Kohler Co., provide all of the emergency backup power necessary to keep homes running smoothly and protect those homes from the damages of failed sump pumps, lack of heat or air conditioning and loss of refrigerated foods. A reliable back-up power source allows us to stay in our homes during a power outage, placing less stress on our families and leaving emergency responders free to help others in need.
For more information about staying safe and stress free during a power outage, visit No Power, No Problem at the Great Hurricane Blowout website.
