The Weekly Fire Alarm Test

London Fire Alarms can carry out your Weekly Fire Alarm Test for you.


Weekly Fire Alarm Test

Fire Safety Law in England and Wales require a proper system of Maintenance to be in place. See also Enforcement, appeals and Penalties

To comply with the requirements of BS5839 for commercial premises or domestic premises with a grade A Fire Alarm system, a Weekly Fire Alarm Test must be carried out. This is the legal duty of The Responsible Person. It should be done at the same time each week. A different Manual Call Point should be operated each week. Correct operation of the Fire Alarm System including indication of Zone and Label should be observed. Any remote signalling should be proved. The test must be properly recorded in The Fire Alarm log book 

Did you know? Most Fire Alarm Panels have a built in ‘Event Log’. So all Fire Alarm activations are recorded (this is like the black box of the fire alarm system). If the Fire Alarm System is linked to a ‘Monitoring Centre’ then all of the Fire Alarm activations will be recorded there as well. This means that there is a record of whether or not the weekly Fire Alarm Test is being carried out.

In the event of a real FIRE, the Insurers and the Fire Brigade can easily check whether or not these weekly tests were actually carried out. This, they will do and the implications of failure on the part of The Responsible Person are severe.

We are here to help.  If you are not able to fulfil this obligation, London Fire Alarms can do this for you. So, you can get on with running your business without having to worry about being non-compliant.

What price peace of mind?  The cost of a basic Weekly Fire Alarm Test may be as low as £64 for premises located in West London and a little more for Central, North, East or South London.
