Weekly Fire Alarm Test

The fire alarm must be tested weekly, normally on the same day at the same time, testing a different call point each week. All employees and customers should be made aware of the fire alarm tests.

Using whatever means appropriate (test button, key fob etc), test the fire alarm manual call point and ensure that the alarm sounds and resets.

Does the fire extinguisher appear to be discharged? Are the hose, nozzle, horn and connections free from debris or damage?

Do the extinguishers have any dirt or grime on them that could be obstructing the instructions?

Are the extinguishers free from obstruction and within their date of service?
