How often do fire alarms
need to be tested?
 

Once a fire alarm has been installed, a business needs to ensure it is in full working order so it can provide maximum protection to a premises, contents, and onsite personnel. A faulty fire alarm system can pose great danger so it is essential that you check your fire alarms regularly so you know it is in full working order.

Regular maintenance is compulsory

It is a legal requirement that your business has a fire detection and warning system, and though the system you use may differ depending on the type of business you run, you must make sure it is working.

So that your system is working efficiently and is fault free, it is worth having your alarm system serviced a minimum of once a year. Maintenance will allow for any faults to be discovered and repaired and will reduce the likelihood of more serious faults developing in the future.

When to check your fire alarm

All businesses should check their alarm systems on a weekly basis to ensure they are in full working order. If you chose to do so during working hours when the building it occupied, it is important to make sure you inform all employees of the alarm tests to avoid it being treated like a real alarm.

Organising a drill

It is also a legal requirement to carry out one fire drill per year and record the results. However, as personnel and businesses can change throughout the year, it is worth carrying out a drill every 3 to 6 months so all occupants understand the evacuation procedure and know what their role within it is.
