Ensuring the emergency lighting works in your building can be easy to forget about. Ideally, you won’t ever have a situation requiring your emergency lighting, but if you do, you want those in your building to be able to evacuate quickly and safely. Emergency lighting inspections help make sure your emergency lighting is functioning properly and is up to code.
For emergency lighting and fire protection you can trust, choose the experts at United Fire Protection. Since 1994, we have been providing quality service to customers in the Central Florida region and beyond.

How Often Does Emergency Lighting Need Testing?
The Life Safety Code® produced by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) outlines standards and requirements of emergency lighting, including how often it should be tested. According to section 7.9 of the code, emergency lighting should be tested both monthly and annually.
The monthly test should last 30 seconds, whereas the annual test requires a 90-minute test. In addition to testing your emergency lighting, inspecting for wear and tear or potential issues is critical to keep your system functioning properly.
Do I Need a Professional for Emergency Lighting Inspection?
While you can conduct the monthly emergency lighting tests yourself, yearly tests should be performed by a licensed professional. Having a professional handle your annual emergency lighting inspections offers you a number of benefits including:
- Compliance with federal and local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) regulations
- Accurate documentation of inspection tests, which is critical if requested by your AHJ
- Correct duration and testing for monthly and annual lighting tests
- Prompt notification if repair is needed to any components of your emergency lighting
- Convenience of regularly scheduled tests so you are always up to date
And perhaps most the most important benefit: peace of mind that your emergency lighting will work if needed.
