It needs to play often enough people know what it is and don’t panic, but not so often it becomes ignored. Additionally, that tone gets picked up EAS systems which do certain things with it within the broadcast system. So just playing it randomly could potentially affect those systems in more ways than just the tone simply playing.

There was this house I used to drive by regularly. One day it was sold and the new owners, to count as a remodel, started construction and tore down the entire thing except the sun room which came off the side of the house.

Then about 6 months later they tore down the sun room and redid that too :)
