Several months of winter remain this year with the potential for additional snow, ice and power outages.
Boone Fire wants to educate the public to the dangers of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning from fuel burning appliances and equipment. Lower temperatures like experienced during the arctic blast in December of 2022 creates increased heating demand. Your primary heat source may not be able to keep up. During cold weather and power outages, homeowners may use portable generators for power and secondary heat sources that produce Carbon Monoxide (CO).
