  • Generators and Space Heaters


Generator Safety

    • Always read the label on your generator and the owner’s manual. Follow all instructions.
    • Generators make an invisible, odorless gas called carbon monoxide, or CO, that can kill you. To avoid CO poisoning, operate generators outdoors only in a well-ventilated, dry area, away from home air intakes, and protected from direct exposure to rain.
    • Never use a generator indoors or in attached garages. Install CO alarms with battery backup in your home’s sleeping areas.
    • Get to fresh air immediately if you start to feel sick, weak or dizzy.
    • Never use a portable generator in any enclosed or partially enclosed space. Windows and doors do not provide enough ventilation.
    • Do not locate a portable generator outside near windows or doors.

Space Heater Safety

    • Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home. Test smoke alarm batteries every month and change them at least once a year.
    • Kerosene heaters are not permitted in many areas. If you use one, use only the recommended fuel. Always refuel outdoors safely away from your home.
    • Allow your heater to cool before refueling. Kerosene has a low flash point and might cause a fire if it comes into contact with a hot surface.
    • Space heaters need room. Keep flammable materials at least three feet away from the heater. Never set the heater on a chair or table. It should sit only on an uncarpeted floor.
    • When buying a space heater, look for a control feature that automatically shuts off the heater if the heater falls over.
    • Keep an eye on your heater at all times while it is running. Shut it off before you go to bed or when you leave the house. Never run a portable heater longer than the manufacturer recommends.
    • Carefully follow manufacturer’s installation and maintenance instructions.
