Oh, I agree with your first post. I read it as all conditions must be met.

If the fire drills are new, perhaps one floor above the third has been taken over by the government to house old people. Perhaps you should enquire as to why the sudden change.

Ok.

Why are you asking this question?
The fire drills are annoying and intrusive. This morning, gov't employees are entering each unit (not a real fire drill) to check fire devices and window latches, during which I had to put up with continual chatter on the P.A. box mounted in the apartment: "Testing all speakers. Test 1-2. Testing all speakers. Test 1-2. [Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz]".

Tomorrow is another fire drill, only 2 months after the previous.

That makes 4 people (you, a gov't friend, a gov't woman I spoke with, and me). (The U.S. lawyer wasn't sure, but was open minded about it.) Those who think and equals or might not be in the majority after all (kubera, Paul, 2 gov't employees--if memory serves).

I'm not sure if there's been a change in fire drill frequency since we moved here.

I wondered about that, too, but I am unable to determine if every high-rise in the province is also subject to fire drills every 3 months, which would shed some light on how the law is interpreted. It's unclear why the infirm would require more frequent drills, or why drills couldn't be conducted for them alone. I've asked Regnar about his dad's building, DD about where he lived on Rowena, and my mum about my grandfather's condo in Etobicoke; am awaiting their answers.

There was another fire drill today, the third of 2011. This doesn't even conform to the law, which calls for a drill every 3 months.

Starting today, there will be a monthly fire sprinkler test in our building "as required by law". We may hear sounds from the alarm system during these tests, which are scheduled to run between 9 AM and 5 PM. (Didn't hear anything today.)

No response from Regnar.

From DD:
Quote :
never had a fire drill. There was one actual alarm in the middle of the night, but that was not a drill. I do seem to recall that they tested the alarm from time to time, not sure how often, but I don't think it was more than once a year. But it was a day time test of the alarms, not an actual drill.
No drills--unless a test = drill. The building is 12 storeys; not sure if its height falls within scope of 3.2.6.1., though it seems to. Roughly, 12 storeys ~ 120 feet = 36.58 m.

My grandfather's condo has them frequently; possibly every 3 months.
