Beware of Carbon Monoxide Dangers

With the widespread power outages, New Brunswickers are reminded of the threat that carbon monoxide can pose in their homes. Residents are advised to never run a generator in a home, garage, or near a window or air intake outside of a home. It is not safe to use a barbecue, camping stove or propane heater inside a house or garage. More information about the dangers of carbon monoxide is available online at www.gnb.ca/emo.

People have died or been hospitalized in recent years because of carbon monoxide poisoning. Here is Kenny’s story: https://youtu.be/FsLX2M2iWsg
