Warning: Carbon monoxide poisoning.

Electrical generators are used to make electricity at the shelters in affected area where the electricity does not go on, or in such area as Kanto region where planned blackouts are put into practice. Maybe the generators are placed outside. There are some possibilities that carbon monoxide poisoning will be caused if you set the generator at the entrance of the shelter and the direction of the wind changes. If there is anyone who gets headache or feels sick near the generator, there is the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning. In that case, ask medical staff to change the place of generator or to let fresh air into the room.
