Wind Sock for Industrial Emergency Response

Are there guidelines in NFPA on wind sock for use in an industrial emergency response setting?

Example: to indicate the wind direction for safe approach or escape during release of toxic gas


How do you select which wind sock features are important:

- Visibility e.g. color, stripes, size, installation location

- External or internal lighting for nighttime emergency

- Material e.g. durability, weatherproof, ease of installation


Are there guidelines in other fields e.g. aviation, that can be referred?
