SAFETY TIPS

Because we have so many campers with us during race week, it is extremely important that all guests stay safe. Please see below for important safety information.

Generators

  • Avoid carbon monoxide poisoning when using generators.
  • Never use a generator or heater inside RVs, tents, trailers or similar areas, even when using fans or opening doors and windows for ventilation. Deadly levels of carbon monoxide can quickly build up in these areas and can linger for hours, even after the generator has shut off.
  • Follow the instructions that come with your generator. Locate the unit outdoors and far from RVs, tents, trailers, doors, windows and vents that could allow carbon monoxide to come indoors.
  • Get fresh air right away if you start to feel dizzy or weak.

Fire Hazards

  • Never ​store fuel for your generator in RVs, tents or trailers. Gasoline, propane, kerosene and other flammable liquids should be stored outside of these areas in properly labeled, non-glass safety containers. Do not store them near a fuel-burning appliance, such as a natural gas water heater.
  • Before refueling the generator, turn it off and let it cool down. Gasoline spilled on hot engine parts could ignite.
