Here in Florida, as the temperature quickly drops to levels we don’t like or are used to, make use that any space heaters you might be using aren’t causing harm. For weather hazards here that we ARE more used to and the upper east coast currently experiencing, like hurricanes, beware of gas-fueled portable generators. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas that can’t be seen, smelled or tasted, and is important to be aware of any exposure while using any of these.
For more information on the dangers of CO and how you can prevent any danger, visit OSHA’s Carbon Monoxide Fact Sheet at http://www.osha.gov/OshDoc/data_General_Facts/carbonmonoxide-factsheet.pdf.
