How often do fire extinguishers need to be inspected?
Fire extinguishers are required by NFPA 10 (National Fire Protection Association) to be inspected once a month. The annual inspection is more robust and is required to be done by a licensed professional. Both the extinguisher firm and the technician must have a license to do the annual inspection and place a certification tag on it.
How often should emergency lighting be tested?
The frequency of testing emergency lights can vary depending on local regulations and specific requirements. Below are the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code requirements:
This involves activating the lights for 30 seconds to ensure they turn on and provide adequate illumination.
A more comprehensive annual test is mandated by the NFPA and local fire inspector where the emergency lights are tested for 90 minutes. The inspector checks to make sure the light will burn for 90 minutes, the bulbs stay bright for the entire time, and that the light heads are pointed in the correct direction.
The batteries in emergency lights have a limited lifespan. Depending on the type of battery used, they may need to be replaced every 3 to 5 years, or as recommended by the manufacturer. Regularly check the battery status and replace them when they reach the end of their useful life.
It’s important to note that these testing frequencies are general recommendations, and you should always refer to the specific guidelines provided by local regulations, building codes, and the manufacturer’s instructions for your particular emergency lighting system. Additionally, it is advisable to keep a log or documentation of all maintenance and testing activities performed on emergency lights for compliance and reference purposes.
How often should fire alarms be tested?
Fire alarms should be tested regularly to ensure their proper functioning. The frequency of testing can vary based on local regulations, building codes, and the specific type of fire alarm system installed. Here are some general guidelines for fire alarm testing:
It is common to perform a brief weekly test of the fire alarm system. This typically involves activating a manual call point or using a test button to simulate an alarm condition and verify that the alarm signal is transmitted to the control panel. The weekly test is usually a quick check to ensure basic functionality.
Monthly testing involves a more comprehensive evaluation of the fire alarm system. This includes testing individual components, such as smoke detectors, heat detectors, and audible/visual devices. The aim is to ensure that each component is operating correctly and producing the intended alarm signals. Monthly testing may also involve checking the battery backup system and verifying the communication with the central control panel.
An annual test is a more thorough examination of the entire fire alarm system. It should be performed by a qualified technician or a professional fire alarm service company. The annual test includes functional testing of all components, verification of system performance against the manufacturer’s specifications, and inspection of wiring, connections, and control panel settings. It may also involve testing the alarm signals received by the monitoring station (if applicable) and conducting a sensitivity test on smoke detectors.
