Generators give off carbon monoxide that can .quickly reach toxic levels, even if doors and windows are left open. If you must use a portable generator as a power source, locate it far away from the house. Beware of home heating shortcuts. If the power goes out, or your furnace malfunctions, don't bring outdoor equipment like charcoal grills or camp stoves indoors and don't use your gas range or oven as a space heater. Before lighting a fire in your wood-burning fireplace, open the damper and keep it open until the ashes are cool. Never leave your car running inside an attached garage, even if the overhead door is open. Fumes can still build up inside the garage and seep into the house.
