Weekly Fire Alarm Testing

This is to prove on a weekly basis that the control panel is capable of receiving and processing a fire alarm signal and providing an output to the fire alarm sounders.

A different manual call point should be used each week so that all manual call points in the building are tested in rotation over a prolonged period. The results of the weekly test and the location of the manual call points used should be recorded in the site logbook.

  • We ensure minimal disruption when testing
  • We ensure a regular weekly schedule
  • Testing each week on the same day every week
  • We liaise with all tenants prior to the test being carried out
  • We will liaise weekly with your Fire Alarm Monitoring Company if your fire alarm system has this type contract set up
  • We record all tests in your Fire Log Book which is always kept on the premises

  • We will test a different Fire Alarm Call Point each week ensuring systematic call point rotation is followed

Under British Standard 5839: Part 1 – Fire Detection & Alarm System for Buildings – Code of Practice for System Design, Installation and Servicing Section 4 – User Responsibilities:
