  21. PORTABLE LIGHTING EQUIPMENTSetup and Use • Set up the generator in an open area • Never fill generator while it is running • Use a ground fault interrupter • Place cords so they won’t be a tripping hazard • Never lay electrical cords in water • Place lights so they won’t blind firefighters • Place lights so they won’t be subject to water spray • Start generator • Use proper connectors and adapters • Adjust lights as necessary Safety
