we too have a door to door program, the number of homes we visit each year varies on the amount of members that participate, but we usually hit around 200-250 homes(i usually plan for around 300-400). we installed roughly $3000 worth of alarms last year, which was thanks to a grant we received. this year we had to drop the number of homes targeted due to not having any grants, and we just cant budget that much money for just alarms.  Additionally we have never charged for the alarms we installed, either during our program or when crews find it on calls. i will however issue a ticket if its found on a call. I’m not sure they can scrap the entire program, as your required to have some kind of smoke alarm program as outlined in PFSG 04-40B-03. i totally agree with the amount of work/life saved issue, and thankfully my chief is on the same page.
