Onboard a container vessel we used to check all the bilge alarms every month and it was recorded with the chief officer’s signature near the bilge alarm and pumping out pannel.
When a bilge alarm comes we used to get the Alarm on Bridge and Ships office on some ships it can be in CCR. The panel looks different on different vessel. Look at a sample we found onboard a container vessel.
The above image is panel for bilge alarm and pumping out arrangement. Once bilge alarm testing is complete our pannel will look something like the image below.
