If you have a home portable or stationary generator, you should make sure to dig out and around it to ensure that it properly functions if you need it. You should try and clear out approximately 3 feet around it.
In the below photo, Fire Chief Scott Goldstein takes a quick break from overseeing MCFRS storm operations to clear out around his home generator in case his family needs it.
Notice also the protective cover that is utilized until such time the generator is needed.
