Advice on Safe Room Markings

A question was recently received from a CERT member asking about safe room markings in the workplace. "What is the proper way to mark an office as a "safe room" and it be obvious to a firefighter in a smoky hallway?"

FEMA has produced a 264 page PDF entitled "Design Guidance for Shelters and Safe Rooms: Providing Protection to People and Buildings Against Terrorist Attacks" which addresses this and much more. It is available online at:
