There are a number of states and municipalities that have implemented laws that require the placement of signs on the exterior of the building to warn emergency personnel of truss-type construction. These truss signs are to be displayed on all new commercial and industrial structures that are built using either wood or steel trusses. The truss design, which is constructed of diagonal members of wood or steel, is strong, but has one major weakness. A fire can weaken the truss structure, and cause a floor or roof to collapse, which poses a great danger to fire fighters during an emergency.
