Kentucky Safety Concerns

Kentucky – The Kentucky Department of Health and Family Services is concerned about the safety of residents still without power. Department officials surveyed more than 500 households in 10 Western Kentucky counties and concluded that many people are at continued risk of carbon monoxide poisoning from improper use of generators. The state is reminding anyone using generators to place them at least 25 feet from their home and to check that batteries are active in your carbon monoxide detector.
