Statement from Mayor Thomas M. Menino on Dangers of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

As the clean-up efforts of this storm get underway, it is important to remember that dangers are still present. The threat of carbon monoxide poisoning is real, already causing the loss of one young life, possibly another in Mattapan, and other incidents involving carbon monoxide throughout our city. I cannot stress enough that parents and caretakers of children, and all Boston residents, do not take the dangers of this stormís aftermath lightly.


I urge all our residents to use caution and be safe when clearing your driveways and homes this weekend. Remove snow around any external vents. Do not use generators indoors. Never grill inside or use your oven for heating. Do not start your car until you have cleared the tailpipe. Do not run your car in the garage, and roll down the windows while warming a parked car.


Iím also calling on residents to look out for your neighbors, especially those New Bostonians who have come to our city from warmer climates. Please reach out to these neighbors, and make sure they understand the dangers this much snowfall brings, and how quickly carbon monoxide can claim a life.

My heart goes out to the family who lost a loved one today. Our public health, public safety and public school officials are providing support to the victimís family. We are doing all we can to ensure the loss of life stops here, and ask everyone in our city to help us in that pursuit.


The City of Boston is utilizing all available communications channels to notify residents of the dangers of carbon monoxide. 173,000 residents have been reached through the automated Alert Boston notification system, a ConnectEd message will go to 67,000 Boston Public Schools families and staff in English and Spanish, Boston Police are using bull horns in neighborhoods, and City of Boston social media channels are amplifying the message.
