I'm surprised you don't have this already. I live in a highrise in downtown Chicago, and we have a PA system built into the centralized fire/heat detectors. The entire system is tested every summer. This was mandated by City Council several years ago after a single highrise fire in which people died.

Even before that, though, Chicago had some of the strictest fire safety regulations in the country. But then, Chicago gets still gets really nervous about fires...
