Not really a fire drill
How to not instill confidence, have the fire alarm in your apartment building twice this morning (while trying to get ready) and now twice this evening. No apearant smoke, building maintenance is unconcerned, no fire trucks arrive, but nobody knows why the fire alarm keeps going off. Hmmm, good night sleep? Not really likely.
Add one more fire alarm. We called the fire department to come check it out. Nothing. But, we did find out it is against the law for the building management to keep turning off the fire alarm like they have been doing all day. We also found out the building management does not call the fire department, that is up to the tenants (so that is what the rent is for?)
A 1:15 fire alarm now has be still awake. This just sucks.
