With an all-new symbol for smoke and other changes, the 2015 NFPA 170 works to standardize fire safety symbols for better communication.
Revised for clarity and to help standardize the use of symbols, the 2015 edition of NFPA 170: Standard for Fire Safety and Emergency Symbols presents uniform symbols used for fire safety, emergency, and associated hazards.
NFPA 170 provides designers, engineers, architects, and emergency planners with key information -- including the new symbol for smoke.
The Standard includes symbology for emergency management mapping, and emergency evacuation diagrams and plans. In a major change for the 2015 edition, the symbol for smoke has been revised from a wisp of smoke to an 'S.'
Use the 2015 NFPA 170 to improve communication between building occupants, designers, installers, and first responders.
This edition is essential for the fire service, as well as for architectural and engineering drawings, insurance diagrams, fire fighting operations, and pre-incident planning sketches. Annexes provide explanatory material and symbols for life safety planning. (Softbound, 42 pp., 2015)
