    Portable Generator Death Reports Double:

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    May 20, 2004
    Release # 04-141 CPSC Consumer Hotline: (800) 638-2772
    CPSC Media Contact: Ken Giles, (301) 504-7052

    Portable Generator Death Reports Double:
    CPSC Staff Discusses Ways to Reduce Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Deaths

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
    today released a new staff report (pdf) announcing that reports of
    generator-related carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning deaths doubled in
    recent years. In 2003, CPSC had reports of 36 deaths from CO poisoning
    associated with portable generators. In 2002, there were 40 deaths
    reported. This was a 100 percent increase from the reported 18 deaths in
    2001 and 20 deaths in 2000. From 1990 through 2003, 228 CO poisoning
    deaths associated with portable generators were reported to CPSC. CPSC
    staff held a forum today to discuss the new data and possible ways to
    reduce the risk from generators.

    "If you use a gasoline-powered generator, set it up outside in a dry
    area, away from air intakes to the home," said CPSC Chairman Hal
    Stratton. "Opening doors and windows or operating fans to ventilate will
    not prevent CO build-up in the home. Even with a CO alarm, you should
    never use a gasoline-powered generator inside your home or in a garage."

    At today's forum, CPSC staff described the typical hazard scenarios in
    which generator-related CO poisoning deaths occurred. About 40 percent
    of the deaths (89) occurred during the winter months. Almost 70 percent
    of the deaths occurred at home, often with the generator in a
    basement/crawlspace or in a garage/enclosed carport. About 26 percent of
    fatal generator incidents involved more than one death. Adults ages 25
    and older accounted for about 80 percent of CO poisoning deaths
    associated with portable generators. The majority (72 percent) of the
    victims were male. "Virtually all of these CO poisoning deaths could
    have been prevented by keeping the generator away from the home or
    attached garage," Stratton said.

    Attendees at the forum included generator and engine manufacturers,
    voluntary standards organizations, consumer groups, retailers,
    state/local health officials, and medical professionals. These groups
    discussed technical approaches and public awareness strategies to reduce
    the CO risk and also emphasized that a generator must never be used in a
    home, garage, basement, or crawlspace. CPSC has more details about the
    safe use of generators at: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/portgen.html

    My doctor was baffled by my chronic fatigue and suggested I lose some weight and get more exercise. Soon after, I had my car's brakes repaired, and the mechanic discovered a defective exhaust pipe. Carbon monoxide had filled my car for a half-hour every morning and evening. After the exhaust was fixed, the chronic fatigue syndrome disappeared.
