Fire Dampers

I have a situation where a modification was made to a business in a plaza and they were required to install fire dampers in the HVAC.
Do you know if there is normally a test of these (especially on a retro fit like this) or just a visual inspection of them?

  1. These dampers are required to be physically tested at installation, 1 year after installation and then every four years following. This test includes the removal of the link to ensure closure.
