Be sure and read the fine print

Emergency signage should be clear, concise and to the point.

Here is a stellar example, the Fire Evacuation Plan for a hotel near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Only the top third of the sign has anything to do with fire evacuation; the rest of the plan is devoted to:

  • Safety and security
  • Your vehicle
  • Traveling
  • Guest room security
  • Safe deposit boxes
  • Keys
  • Reporting [suspicious activity]
  • Recreational activity
  • Room rates
  • Check out times
  • And the ever popular Hotel Laws of the state of Washington.
