You need to bring in an electrician to install a transfer switch. This is not a DIY job if you have to ask.

If anyone tries to tell you to make up a cord with a plug on one end for the generator and another to plug into the dryer outlet in your house, send them packing right away. We call that a "suicide cord" and for good reason. Not only is this dangerous for you and your family, you can kill the people trying to resore power.
