What type of alarm should I buy?
When choosing a smoke alarm, there are several things to consider. Dozens of reputable brands of smoke detectors are readily available. No matter where you buy your detectors, be sure to buy only "listed" units. The Underwriters Laboratories (UL) or Factory Mutual (FM) mark on your smoke detector will ensure that it was evaluated and it meets nationally recognized safety requirements.
