Automatically forcing file system check?

Is it possible on Redhat linux (or fedora) to force the file system check every time without having to "push Y within %d seconds to force file integrity check"?

This is a clip from man shutdown, it doesn't completely answer
you question but I think its going in the right direction.
The  -F  flag  means  ‘force fsck’.  This only creates an advisory file
/forcefsck which can be tested by the system when it  comes  up  again.
The  boot  rc  file can test if this file is present, and decide to run
fsck(1) with a special ‘force’ flag so  that  even  properly  unmounted
filesystems  get  checked.   After that, the boot process should remove
