Mark your Truss-type construction and protect firefighters

Trusses are fabricated components (constructed with diagonal members) made of wood and steel. Although Truss structures are very safe and the smart choice when spanning a large open area, they collapse with less stress from a fire, thus putting firefighters in greater danger. Marking Truss-type buildings with labels on entrances will allow firefighters to be prepared while fighting a fire in that structure. Trusses are covered by roof or floor systems so if a fire goes undetected for even a short time, these structures will be extremely damaged before help arrives. New York State, New Jersey, Florida, Vermont and various cities across the country have developed truss codes for primarily new construction. Other states and more cities are expected to follow suit.
