CU comments to OMB on proposed CPSC smoke and carbon monoxide detector survey

Consumers Union, the advocacy division of Consumer Reports (CR), welcomes the opportunity to submit comments to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in reference to the proposed U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) survey regarding smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. We strongly support the CPSC’s intention to conduct an updated national survey on this subject, so that it can better understand how consumers interact with these detectors and can help further reduce deaths and injuries from fires and carbon monoxide poisoning in the home.
