Oct. 31, 2022, P.E.I. – Environment, Energy and Climate Action, in partnership with P.E.I’s Fire Marshal’s Office, is distributing emergency generators to fire departments across the province for use in Island communities.

“Each provincial fire department will be offered up to 15 generators, gas cans and extension cords to be distributed as needed during power outages resulting from natural disasters and other emergencies,” said Environment, Energy and Climate Action minister Steven Myers

Local fire services can use the generators as part of their operations and communities can use them to set-up more emergency reception centres or meet other needs of their residents through their local fire services.

“It’s important for Islanders to know that portable generators emit carbon monoxide and portable generator exhaust can be deadly. Anyone who uses generators should always review equipment manuals and follow safe generator use tips,” said provincial Fire Marshal Dave Rossiter
