    Description

    The impact and recall value of a set of regularly used U.S. Forest Service fire prevention signs were compared with that of a set of improvised signs by interviews with typical forest users. The improvised signs generated a substantially greater impact. Although the regular signs have had past exposure to the general public, they demonstrated no significant difference from the experimental signs in the test of recall.
