HFD has responded to numerous calls related to carbon monoxide. DO NOT heat your home using a stove, oven, or grill. Only use generators outside. Always back your vehicle completely out of the garage before idling.

⚠️ Carbon monoxide is a silent killer.
- DO NOT run a car or truck inside a garage, even if you leave the door open.
- DO NOT burn anything in a stove or fireplace that isn’t vented.
- DO NOT heat your house with a gas oven.
