Over the course of a year, many buildings experience some form of power outage. When that occurs, it's crucial that both emergency lighting and exit signs are fully operational to guide building occupants to safety.

Section 6.5 of the BC Fire Code outlines the following emergency light testing requirements:

  • Emergency Light Packs are to be inspected at intervals no greater than 1 month to ensure pilot lights operate, that there is no terminal corrosion, batteries are kept clean and dry, and that the unit will transfer to DC power in the event of a power loss.
  • Annually, the emergency light packs will require testing to ensure the emergency lighting units provide lighting for a duration equal to the design criterion under simulated power failure.
  • Upon completion of an annual test, charging conditions for voltage and current are measured to ensure the charging system is functioning correctly.

Community Fire Prevention supplies, installs, inspects, and services emergency lights & batteries in Surrey, Richmond, and Greater Vancouver. They work across all industries and sectors, including low and high-rise residential, commercial warehousing, industrial & manufacturing facilities, schools, hospitals, and retirement residences. By helping businesses understand the codes and remain compliant, they will help reduce the worry of insurance coverage eligibility.
