State Fire Marshal Urges Safe Generator Use During Winter Weather
tn.gov Wednesday January 20, 2016

As cold weather sweeps across Tennessee, home and business owners may rely on portable generators during occasional power outages to operate their electrical equipment such as heating units, computers, water pumps and lighting. While portable generators can provide a quick fix, they also pose the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. The State Fire Marshal’s Office reminds residents that following some basic tips can ensure safe generator use every time. Follow all manufacturers instructions and never use a portable generator inside the home, basement, crawl space, garage or any enclosed area. Place generators at at least 20 feet away from doors and windows. Because carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas, it is often referred to as the invisible killer. Since 2013, 12 people have died in Tennessee as a result of non-fire related carbon monoxide poisoning. Know the initial symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning: headache, fatigue, shortness of breath, nausea, and dizziness (flulike symptoms but without the fever). If you experience these symptoms during or after generator use, get to a fresh air location immediately and have someone call 911.
