be especially dangerous. If you are not in good health or unsure 
about what you are doing, have someone with tree cutting experience 
do the job. Never cut trees without a partner.

If using a generator, avoid carbon monoxide poisoning by following 
instructions provided by the manufacturer. Operate your generator in 
a well-ventilated space outside of your living area and away from 
open doors and windows.

Be alert for any lingering wind gusts which could take down weakened 
trees and/or power lines, collapse damaged structures, or cause 
flying debris.
