This Fire Alarm Check Record is the part of the fire risk assessment process where the condition and effectiveness of fire fighting equipment will need to be tested, and a system put in place to ensure the proper maintenance of that equipment.
The fire detection and warning systems should be checked weekly for their state of repair and operation. A full test and service should be carried out by a competent engineer annually. For guidance please download the Maintenance & Testing of Fire Equipment Guidance Notes, available from the Related Documents links below.
