At Central York Fire Services, we have two programs. A Stay Fire Smart program where crews go to houses in select areas and door knock to provide safety information. Crews are assigned a certain number of homes in a given area. Not optional.

We also run a door to door smoke alarm campaign where we go to houses throughout the later spring and summer. We check, test and provide smoke alarms (if necessary). Specific neighbourhoods are pre-determined each year. We hire two students from a college fire protection/safety course to do this campaign.
