Caution Sign - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the US Fire Administration (USFA), are instructing Northeastern residents to be careful as Hurricane Sandy travels north. The power outages can create safety hazards. To stay safe, the government agencies are offering survival tips.

There is a higher risk for carbon monoxide poisoning if residents us gas-powered generators. Burning candles can cause fires. Fallen power lines can cause electrical shock.

The generators should never be run in basements, garages, or near the home. The carbon monoxide created is equivalent to several vehicles running in the garage. Carbon monoxide poisoning can be deadly in minutes. People may not be aware that they are being exposed to the gas because it is odorless and colorless.
