    Hold fire, good one. Don't start one until the signs are in place.

    Creates the signs as downloadable PDFs with whatever text you choose to enter.
    I can agree with using this site, I use it for making internal signs EG room out of bounds, Warning Fibre Optics here etc (not fire exit signs!) You would be ok with using them for Temporary Ones I would think though (put temporary sign on the bottom of the print out to ensure that if you get someone spying they realise its a temp not a permanent one)

    Ask your local fire service liason what the requirements are it's going to be governed by the The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order and Health and Safety (Safety Signs & Signals) Regulations 1996

    Don't make you own, go out and purchase some proper ones, there is a ruling with regards to signs etc but I cannot find the document, it was an act brought in in 2007 if I remember correctly.

    Your local council should have a Fire Safety advisor who can advise on the issue, failing that I notice you are in Staffs, contact Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service and they will be able to advise. I notice you are in Cheadle, the fire station there is crewed by retained firefighters who are not always on station so if you though I will pop down you will be out of luck, they do drill though on a Tuesday evening between 7 and 9pm.

    Is this really your job??? Isn't this the responsibility of the person in charge of Health and Safety at your school??

    It seems to me that we technicians are becoming more and more office typists who get asked to do things because people think 'I need something doing on the computer, Ill ask someone in IT because they can do it quicker than I can'.

    On a serious note fire signs are not an ICT technician's job.

    This thread demonstrates it quite nicely, since you've come here to ask other ICT techs what the regs are. And none of us really seem to know.

    I have involvement with Fire Service history and have just been doing some updates on the Staffordshire section this week, the information was literally under my nose when the post popped up!!

    Hope you get sorted.

    They should be to the latest EU design and specification, this includes IIRC no word "EXIT" as this is an english word and may not be understoof..

    IIIRC , the current correct sign is green background, white figure running to a door with a representation of flames behind them.
