"Because you can never be too prepared!"

True confessions time... Fall is actually our favorite time of year!  Despite that, our thoughts of summers past, present, and future quickly turn bittersweet as August winds to a close.  The sights of school buses making practice runs, the school supply campaigns hitting the airwaves, and that ever so subtle change in the morning air - all serve as well-timed reminders that 'Back to School' time has indeed arrived.  
As we look to fall, we're filled with anticipation...for Mother Nature's colorful leaf show, apple picking, the warmth of wood burning fireplaces, the smell of freshly baked treats, and more.  We're also reminded that the weather can wreak havoc this time of year. As such, this issue is our 'Get Ready' edition, filled with tips and ideas for weathering storms.  Having a Generac automatic standby power system certainly puts you one BIG step ahead in providing continued comfort, safety and protection for your home and family, in good weather or bad.  If you're already a member of the EPS Generac Club, now is a good time to check your fuel level, look for the green "ready" light, and to pass our name on to your friends and family who could benefit from the addition of an automatic Generac system!  (See below for Generac's 50/50 Referral Rebate Program.) 
As always, we thank you for taking a moment or two to read this month's issue.  We wish you the all the best that this fall season has to offer.  And of course, as your Generac dealer and/or electrical contractor, we look forward to being of service to you whenever we're needed!

We're just the messengers...

Boy do we wish we didn't have to share this news...but it's part of what we do. Most unfortunately, the 2015 Farmer's Almanac predicts another COLD and SNOWY winter.  We'll continue to share winter weather preparedness tips in future newsletters and on our facebook page.  
In anticipation of the frigid temps and repeat of another polar vortex
similar to last year, we urge you to consider adding a Generac Cold Weather Kit to your generator. It includes an automatic thermostatically controlled battery warmer pad as well as a crankcase heater.

Back to School...

In This Month's Issue:
Storm Preparedness...are you ready?
Generac has developed a severe weather checklist that we're happy to pass along for you to share with your friends and family.  

If you have a generator, you have the benefit of peace of mind and comfort. However, even with a generator, it's important to do some planning ahead.  Large storms may mean stores, gas stations or banks are not open. Stocking up on necessities and having a central location for important information and phone numbers will be quite handy as you ride out a severe storm.

In accordance with our mantra, "Because you can never be too prepared!", our  EPS facebook page often shares important tips from the American Red Cross facebook page, but we encourage our EPS family and friends to check out the American Red Cross facebook page for valuable tips and updates!  And in most cases, yes, they "have an app" for that!
