While the Chatsworth Fire Department strongly encourages everyone to install and maintain working smoke detectors in their home, we do not recommend one brand of detector over another. Very useful information about selecting, installing and maintaining smoke detectors can be found on the U.S.F.A.: and N.F.P.A.:  websites; including information about which detectors have been recalled.
