FEMA releases Shelter-in-Place Pictogram Guidance

1 Jun 2021 10:58 AM | Anonymous

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) released Shelter-in-Place Pictogram Guidance for ten hazards and three building types.

The guidance provides recommended interior locations for specific hazards, additional actions for protection, and the recommended duration for staying sheltered-in-place.

The pictograms provide clear, visual guidance to the public on shelter-in-place actions classified by both hazard and building type to ensure the public takes effective protective actions when instructed to shelter-in-place during emergencies. They can be used by community partners in multiple communication channels, such as, posters, websites, just-in-time social media posts and by emergency managers for Integrated Public Alert & Warning System Wireless Emergency Alerts.

The Shelter-in-Place Pictogram Guidance can be found at Planning Guides | FEMA.gov.
