The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) protects all of us against unreasonable risks of injuries and deaths related to the products we buy and use. The CPSC has asked EurekaFacts, a survey research company, to conduct a nationwide in-home and phone survey about household fire and carbon monoxide (CO) safety. The purpose of this survey is to inform CPSC about the use of smoke detectors and CO detectors in homes in the United States. The information collected from this survey will improve household safety across the U.S. Your input will assist with developing standards and guidelines that will help protect property and human life.

When you take part in this research, you speak for thousands of people like you, and you help to make homes safer.

Participation in this survey is voluntary and your responses will be kept confidential. After signing up, EurekaFacts will reach out to you using the contact information you provided to screen and potentially schedule you for an interview. If you qualify and complete the interview, you will receive a gift card from a major credit card company in appreciation for completion of the survey

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to visit our Participant FAQ page here.
