Fire Safety Tips


The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) develops and delivers fire prevention and safety education programs in partnership with other federal agencies, the fire and emergency response community, the media, and safety interest groups.

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

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.

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


The ten hazards are:

  • Active Shooter
  • Chemical Hazards
  • Earthquake
  • Flooding/Flash Flooding
  • Hurricane
  • Nuclear/Radiological Hazards  
  • Pandemic
  • Thunderstorm
  • Tornado
  • Winter Storm

The three building types are:

  • Manufactured or Mobile Home
  • 1- or 2-Story Buildings
  • Multistory Buildings

The shelter-in-place pictograms 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 on Planning Guides |
