It's more like one owner in a condominium deciding to "test" the fire
alarm without first asking the condo association or letting the other
owners know about it ahead of time.
On the other hand, pre-announcing "We will have a fire drill at 8PM Thursday"
doesn't do a whole lot to measure the response effectiveness - everybody
will start getting their shoes and coats on at 7:55PM.
