Publication Number: EEM-00253
Author/Sponsor: Leif Albertson
Alaska has very high rates of carbon monoxide-related deaths compared to the rest of the nation, partly because of the increased use of alternative heat sources during power outages. This publication describes the different types of portable heaters, focusing in particular on unvented propane and kerosene heaters, and gives instructions for how and when to safely use them.
