June Tips of the Month: Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas. Generators can produce high levels of carbon monoxide very quickly. When using a portable generator remember that you can not smell or see carbon monoxide.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to the flu, but without the fever. They include:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

If you start to feel sick, dizzy, or weak while using a generator, get to fresh air immediately. DO NOT DELAY. If you experience serious symptoms, get medical attention immediately. Inform the medical staff that carbon monoxide poisoning is suspected. Call the Fire Department to have someone check your home to determine when it is safe to re-enter the building.
