New National Symbol for Emergency Management
Washington - Nov 30, 2006 - The heads of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Department of Homeland Security Preparedness Directorate, and representatives of state and local emergency managers unveiled a new logo for emergency management. The new logo replaces the old civil defense symbol that was introduced in 1939.
FEMA states that the old civil defense symbols were used in public service campaigns for the same reason the new symbol is being introduced: to inspire people to become more involved in their own protection and preparedness. FEMA feels that it is important to have a "universal visual associated with the field that is so critical to life, safety and security."
