Hey Kevin,

You are way ahead of us.

Chief and I did 30 or so last year (down from our average) and on our annual blitz night crew knocked on 244, entered 129 and installed 42 alarms plus 28 batteries. We’ve never issued a ticket for non-compliance no do we charge for the detectors, we simply do it to make sure they are protected. I’m a supporter of the model you currently use but that’s not in place here.

Since you already invoice for the devices, where’s the cost savings? Are the crews being paid for their time? Our guys do it on one of the training nights so it is covered there. For the career guys, is it taking away from something else they’d be doing?
