Never run generators indoors!
Generators can produce high levels of carbon monoxide (CO). Like electricity, CO cannot be seen or smelt.
If you start to feel sick, dizzy or weak while using the generator move away immediately and get some fresh air.
CO poisoning can kill!
A portable generator is handy when camping or for small power tools, televisions or other appliances when no electricity supply is available.
