Disasters and Emergencies Can Happen Anytime, Anywhere

You don’t have to live in a hurricane zone, a harsh winter climate or Tornado Alley to worry about a power outage. Whether caused by severe weather or infrastructure failure, a power outage can happen without warning in every part of the country. In 2020, power outages left Americans in the dark for 1.33 billion hours. September is National Preparedness Month. Now is a good time to create a power outage preparedness plan and take the steps necessary to keep your loved ones, home and property safe. Purchasing the right generator is an important part of being prepared for the unexpected.

Be Aware of How Much a Power Outage Could Cost You

What you stand to lose far outweighs the initial cost of a home generator. In fact, your investment could pay off several times with just one prolonged power outage.

Don’t be left in the dark. Create a power outage preparedness plan

  • Plan ahead. A backup generator is permanently installed at your home so get prepared ahead of the outage or extreme weather season.
  • Know your power needs. Use the generator sizing tool to determine the generator size you need to power your home.
  • Work with your authorized dealer to get the right solution for you and understand the installation process.
  • Get your Briggs & Stratton standby generator and the peace of mind you will have power when you need it most.
