Product Safety State Contacts

We Need Your Help!

CPSC needs your help to keep people safe in and around the home. We have developed Neighborhood Safety Network safety materials and toolkits to help consumers and communities promote safety and health.

    Listed below is contact information for product safety liaisons from CPSC, states, and U.S. territories. These state contacts work with CPSC to promote product safety programs around the U.S.
