Keep this silent killer out of your home

We've said it before: carbon monoxide kills. Install a CO detector in your home near where people sleep. Use generators outside only, at least 15 feet away from any doors or windows. Ensure the generator exhaust is pointed away from doors or windows. Keep gas-powered lamps, stoves, generators or grills -- charcoal-type included -- OUT of your house, garage, shop or basement. Make sure heater vents and chimneys are clear of dirt and debris. If you feel dizzy or weak, get some fresh air immediately, get out of your house and call 911.
