CPSC Hoverboard Request

Discussion created by Steven Sawyer Employee on Sep 22, 2017

CPSC is continuing to investigate fires involving hoverboards which are also called smart boards or self-balancing boards. Many of these fires occurred indoors and have resulted in serious injuries and deaths. This is a priority investigation and CPSC is devoting the staff time and resources to reduce the risk. We need you help to spread the word and ask that you share the attached letter with State Fire Marshals and fire professionals nationwide. Please feel free to contact me, Beverly Kohen, or Justin McDonough or if you have any questions. As always, thanks for you for your work to keep families safe. We appreciate it! Denise P. Beatty, Director State & Local Programs U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission dbeatty@cpsc.gov (301) 504-7676
