Fire

Incident Sign Guide Helps Improve Firefighter Safety

Screen shot of the cover page for the Incident Sign Installation Guide

Proper use of signs during wildland fires and other incidents is important to inform drivers of hazards. Signs not only inform motorists, they also inform incident management personnel. MTDC has published the Incident Sign Installation Guide (0551–2814–MTDC) to explain how to use signs properly. The guide is based on standards established by the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices and the Standards for Forest Service Signs and Posters (EM–7100–15).

For more information on sign installation, contact Andy Trent, project leader (phone: 406–329–3912; e-mail: atrent@fs.fed.us).

To order the report, contact MTDC publications (phone: 406–329–3978; e-mail: cahegman@fs.fed.us).
