Gatineau firefighters will be going door-to-door in the region starting May 1.
They'll be checking to see if residents have working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
By law in Gatineau, it is mandatory to have a carbon monoxide detector within five metres of every bedroom in a building that has a fuel-burning appliance or shares a wall, floor or ceiling with a garage.
Residents also need to have a smoke alarm on each floor.
Fines for breaching the regulations can reach $300.
