Abstract: This resource guide, produced by the Cumberland Valley Volunteer Firemen’s Association Emergency Responder Safety Institute with support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency United States Fire Administration and the US Department of Justice National Institute of Justice, provides visual examples of high-visibility marking schemes applied to the rear and sides of a variety of vehicles, such as automobiles, pickup trucks, utility truck vehicles, SUVs, vans, box-type trucks, and large service vehicles, to increase public safety officer visibility on the road. The intent of increased vehicle visibility markings and emergency lighting packages is to make the vehicles more visible and identifiable to the approaching motorist sooner, when the motorist is further away from the marked vehicle. Increased visibility, yielding increased awareness of the presence of the vehicle and quicker recognition of the vehicle will potentially reduce the likelihood of collisions and increase safety.
