They are a requirement on sites where there could be a danger from escaping gases or fumes. It is essential for Fire and Rescue Personnel to be able to quickly establish areas of danger and safety. Windsocks can indicate the direction Fire or Escaping Hazardous Fumes from Chemicals may take.

Orange – Used in Snow areas and sometimes on Road Construction Sites.

Pink – Used on Grassland and Forest Areas. Where White or Yellow blossoms are present it would make a Yellow or white Windsock hard to distinguish from above.

Red – Is a Signal for Danger.Red Windsocks are used on Firing Ranges and Mine Sites. The colour red signifies Danger
