This spreadsheet has a list of the Emergency Lights, Exit signs, Extinguishers, Hose stations, and other tasks on it . It's arranged with a route in mind so just start with the first and walk down the list until you're done. This round should be done on Changeover (so, Saturdays) as there won't be conferees in their rooms to bother.
This list doesn't include Battery Smoke Detectors because there are so many of them and it's hard to forget where they are. You will find a Battery Smoke Detector in every bedroom and in every room of small residences (EMB, Doctors, Crow's Nest, etc). They all need to be tested weekly.
Equipment you'll need:
- Hearing protection (seriously)
- A poking stick (about 2-3 ft)
- The MFR list (linked above)
