Forest Fire Warning Signs 

Fires pose a tremendous risk to your park, public safety and the environment, so fire prevention should always be top of mind.  That’s where we can help.  At Nutron-OSM, we manufacture high-quality, high-visibility forest fire warning signs and offer the best options for parks, campgrounds and recreation centers.   

Since 1950, we’ve been fabricating forest fire warning signs that help parks and visitors stay safe by reminding people about the dangers of forest fires.  All of our forest fire warning signs are made in America and provide durable, long-lasting visibility for a wide variety of applications throughout the park, including camping areas and trails for horseback riding, walking, hiking, bicycling, skiing and motorized vehicle riding.  Here’s a quick look at the features associated with our forest fire warning signs.  

Features of Fire Danger Signs 

Our forest fire warning signs come complete with: 

  • A sturdy frame, sign panel 
  • Locking mechanism 
  • Enclosed rating wheel 
  • Hardware 
  • Easy-to-follow instructions  

They’re ready for quick installation right out of the box.  All of our forest fire warning signs can easily be mounted on buildings or attached to free standing posts, and the message area on the sign is available for agency recognition, sponsorship or special notices.  Large and small versions are available, including single-side and two-sided versions, and your logo can be added for an additional charge.  

Enhancing Safety  

Fire damage has been increasing in forests and grasslands across the globe over the years because of extreme temperatures and dry weather conditions in summer months. The recent tragedies in California, Hawaii and Canada are clear examples of how fires endanger human and wildlife safety, the environment, the economy and overall health. Our forest fire warning signs identify potential dangers for the public and offer suggestions for action to prevent a catastrophe.  

Best Practice  

Our forest fire warning signs use the National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS) to indicate fire danger in an area. In use since 1974, the NFDRS consists of five ratings to describe danger levels: 

  • Low (Green): Fire starts are unlikely. 
  • Moderate (Blue): Some wildfires may be expected. 
  • High (Yellow): Wildfires are likely. 
  • Very High (Orange): Fires start easily from all causes and may spread fast. 
  • Extreme (Red): Fires will start and spread rapidly. 

These original and totally unique sign systems offers durability, changeability and custom message continuity. Installed in more than 45 states, these full-color, hi-resolution signs display NFDR ratings and the licensed and famous Smokey Bear logo.
