Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention

Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning Prevention

During power outages after hurricanes/typhoons, major flooding or other extreme weather events, residents can be at risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning if portable generators are not properly used. CO is an odorless and colorless gas that can casue sudden illness or death. CO poisoning typically occurs from breathing in too much carbon monoxide when fossil fuels are burned. Symptons feel flu-like and include headache, dizziness, weakness, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion, with larger hazardous exposure resulting in loss of consciousness, arrhythmias, seizures and death. Below are tools that can assist Environmental Health Professional in informing the public on preventative measure to reduce exposure to carbon monxide.
