The “X”   Leave a comment

We still see Search and Rescue X
markings on some buildings.  I looked on Wikipedia
to find the meaning for  each part of
this FEMA symbol. The X with writing around it means “search completed.” The
left-hand quadrant indicates the name of the team conducting the search. The top
quadrant is the date and time the search was completed. The right-hand quadrant has any additional
information about the structure.  The
bottom quadrant indicates the number of victims found or removed.  Sometimes we saw just some initials with a circle around them and a date. The initials stand for the team conducting the search, and the date for the date of the search. –Bonnie
