Advisory: Portable Generator Hazards
Portable generators are useful when temporary or remote electric power is needed, but they can also be hazardous. The primary hazards to avoid when using a generator are carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning from the toxic engine exhaust, electric shock or electrocution, and fire. Every year, people die in incidents related to portable generator use. Most of the incidents associated with portable generators reported to CPSC involve CO poisoning from generators used indoors or in partially-enclosed spaces.

*Never run a portable generator indoors, including garages, basements and crawl spaces *Get to fresh air right away if you start to feel dizzy or weak
