Danger! Using a Generator Indoors Can Kill You in Minutes!

Power generators produce carbon monoxide and can be a source of CO poisoning. During a power outage, generators are useful for providing electricity but can be dangerous if not used properly.

  • Never use a generator inside your house or in partly enclosed areas such as garages, basements, porches, crawlspaces, or sheds, or in partly-enclosed spaces such as carports or breezeways.
  • Place generators outside, far away and downwind from any buildings.
