Sheehy, Donna ; Cote, Ted ; Smith, John R.. 2012. Incident Sign Installation Guide. 1251 2820P. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Missoula Technology and Development Center.

This report explains how guide, warning, and regulatory signs can be used properly at incidents. Incidents may include any number of different situations, such as wildfires, hurricanes, other natural disasters, and other unplanned events such as traffic accidents. Signs that are set up properly at incidents can reduce the risk of traffic accidents. The guide is based on standards established by the "Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices" and the "Sign and Poster Guidelines for the Forest Service" (EM-7100-15)

Keywords: fire fighting, firefighting, flagging, high-visibility safety apparel, incident, safety at work, signs, specifications, standards, traffic, traffic control, traffic safety, wildfire
