Protect the Protectors Training

Coming Soon in March 2024

NCOAA developed a training course on the Fire Hero Learning Network with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) that addresses the most pressing gaps in carbon monoxide safety knowledge in firefighters.

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that is produced during the burning process, putting firefighters like YOU at high risk of CO poisoning and long term effects like heart disease, memory loss, and more.

To create a safer, more sustainable world, data and scientific discoveries must be amplified and translated into action. That's what we do at UL Standards & Engagement. Through data analysis, expert testimony, and deliberation, we work to bring members of technical committees into alignment on a common set of safety requirements. Distinguished by our independent research and scientific acumen, we’ve been driving cutting-edge science into practical safety guidance since we developed our first standard for tin-clad fire doors in 1903.

The Portable Generator Manufacturers’ Association (PGMA) develops and influences safety and performance standards for our industry's products and helps educate consumers and tradespersons on the safe use of portable generators. Our members include major manufacturers of portable generators sold in North America and represent a significant majority of the industry. 

PGMA developed the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance standard, and generators that comply with the standard include safety features requiring carbon monoxide sensing technology to shut the generator off when CO emissions accumulate above a certain level. These generators are widely available from PGMA members and non-members and are over 98% effective at addressing potential CO hazards from misuse. A newly revised version of the standard, ANSI/PGMA G300-2023, includes lowered CO emission shut-off requirements. 

PGMA reminds consumers that the only safe place to use a portable generator is outside and far from any occupied dwelling. Our Take it Outside™ safety campaign provides resources including severe weather preparedness information, fact sheets (in English and Spanish), safety video, public safety toolkit, recreational safety fact sheet, and newly launched “Generate Safety” program geared towards K-12 students. Visit for more information. In addition, PGMA tracks power outages across the country and distributes media alerts and social media posts providing safety messages during crucial times of generator usage.
