Carbon Monoxide Poisoning & Winter Storms
Winter storms and resulting power outages can increase the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning as people look for alternative sources to heat their homes and prepare food. Protect your family from carbon monoxide poisoning this winter by installing detectors with battery back-up on every floor of your home, especially near sleeping areas and bedrooms. Take precautions if you use a portable generator to power appliances during weather events. Generators should be used outdoors and placed at least 25 feet away from a window, door or vent. Basements and garages are not safe locations to run a generator, even with doors and windows open.
