FEMA Spray paint color for household doors

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

During a storm or disaster, when FEMA goes door to door, making sure everyone is out of the house, they search the house and spray paint an X on the front door, if everyone is out of the house. My question is, what color of paint is used. Just for my own infomation only, you understand.

I plan to board my up so it doesn't get spray painted. They ought to be arrested for graffiti! Let's call them the FEMA Gang.

Krayco... does your mommy know you are playing with the computer?

My mommy don't care, she's zonked out on the sofa with a beer in her hand. I better go snag that cigarette out of her mouth before she burns this place down and then I won't be able to play on this puter no more. That would be a sad day for me cause my daddy left, I don't have no daddy. I'm one of those latch-key kids you hear about. My mommy knows that I am safe playing with the puter and not out spray painting fences and buildings like so many of my friends do, and now the big bad government is doing it to private property. That spray paint is bought with your hard earned tax dollars. Why should I care cause I got this puter for free. Thank you Mr. Al Gore, your a nice man and I hope you get to become president so my mommy won't have to work scrubbing floors no more. But I'm not complaining because we get foods stamps, subsidized housing (I hate the projects but it's a roof over our head). Mommy can't afford a babysitter but she knows where I am at. When I grow up I want to be one of those FEMA people who get to go spray paint people's front door's with a BIG X! I've always wanted to be an artist and I don't think it would take much learning to spray paint an X do you? I'm going to start practicing so I can get really good at it and get hired by FEMA when I grow up.

well, i kinda would like to know what color they use too... could save your life and then again your moms or your dads or your kids or even your dogs... i have no problem with kids on puters either except they need to learn how to make soap too.

It doesn't matter what color it is as long as it's an X! Just don't get mixed up and paint a cross because it could be mistaken for something else.

My solution would be a sign I saw out here recently in front of a house: a picture of a gun, with "We don't dial 911" written underneath.
