Golf Cart Safety

I’m re-posting this information based on reports from the local fire department:


Golf cartAn important warning based on a recent alarm call handled by the Avalon Fire Department:

Batteries in golf carts emit hydrogen (an odorless, colorless, and highly flammable gas) when charging.

In high quantities,  hydrogen gas will activate a carbon monoxide detector.

The alarm call to the Avalon Fire Department was caused by a cart charging while inside a closed garage.

Therefore, charging the cart should be limited to outside, or in a well ventilated area.
