Several people affected by hurricanes Katrina, Rita became sick and died from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. CO, a shapeless, colorless gas that can cause sudden death. Carbon Monoxide is found in combustion fumes
produced by the gasoline engines that power portable generators.
Carbon monoxide from these sources can build up in enclosed or semi-enclosed spaces, poisoning the people and animals that breathe near it. Portable generator use is widespread after natural disasters and it is the main
cause of carbon monoxide poisoning. You can prevent carbon monoxide poisoning by -
Never use generators, grills, camp stoves, or other gasoline, propane, natural gas, or charcoal-burning devices inside your home, basement, garage, or camper-or even outside near an open window.
