When Tags are rotated and shared between staff members, staff will usually pick up their tag from a secure area when their shift begins. Before going to their unit, staff are encouraged to test their tag to ensure it is fully operational.

To check that a tag is working, staff can utilize an Actall test station.  when using a test station staff will be required to enter their device ID.
IMPORTANT: Note the ID number of the Tag (e.g., 012345 found on the tag). 

If there is not a test station, staff should establish a protocol to test the device periodically.   By contacting the control desk and informing them of the intent to test, false alarms will be eliminated.
