How many fire alarm tests is just right in a condo building (not a school dorm)? My building has tests about twice a month and it just seems so excessive! Yeah yeah, safety and all that, but we don't have a 24 hour notice and they off at the worst times like when I'm asleep. I've also noticed that when there is a real alarm, no one bothers evacuating anymore, because it's not always possible to tell the difference between a false and real alarm. I think there's a difference in the frequency of beeps, but I'm not sure.

So you're in control here. How do you balance safety and angry residents?

If you live in a condo, how often do you fire alarm tests?

Do you know the difference between different alarm sounds?
