Be on the Alert for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
- If anyone living in the home (including pets) experiences sleepiness, dizziness, headaches, confusion, or weakness, immediately seek fresh air and call the West Virginia Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222.
- If anyone is unconscious or having convulsions (seizures), call 911
To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, the West Virginia Poison Center offers these tips:
- Never bring a generator indoors, not even in a basement. Generators emit carbon monoxide and should only be used outdoors.
- Do not place generators in an attached garage.
- Never use generators too close to your house or near an open window.
- Carefully follow the manufacturer's safety and placement instructions for generator use.
- Have gas appliances checked annually by a professional.
- Keep all chimneys and flues free of debris.
- Avoid the use of kerosene heaters indoors or in enclosed areas such as tents.
- Ensure car tailpipes are clear of snow if anyone is inside of the vehicle.
- Use battery-operated (or battery-backup) carbon monoxide alarms. Be sure to test the batteries regularly.
