Is this the article you are referring to?

I’m thinking it’s just Thunder Bay’s version of the smoke alarm blitz that many of us do already under various names.  A big component of it though is the combination alarms they got from Union Gas.  Enbridge does something similar in this area, we got a bunch last year and I think the BBDNE guys were successful this year in getting the grant.

It’s been a long standing, yet unofficial program here in Perth to give out alarms as needed, install, change batteries etc. Its basically up to our discretion who we give them out to. As much as I can, I reserve them for, as the article says, lower income property owners and seniors.  I never give them out to landlords as they can write off the purchase.
