(a) When truss type construction, pre-engineered wood construction, and/or timber construction is utilized in the construction of a new residential structure or in an addition to or rehabilitation of an existing residential structure, such residential structure shall be identified by a sign or symbol in accordance with the provisions of this Part.
(b) The sign or symbol required by this Part shall by affixed to the electric box attached to the exterior of the residential structure; provided, however, that:
(1) if affixing the sign or symbol to the electric box would obscure any meter on the electric box, or if the utility providing electric service to the residential structure does not allow the sign or symbol to be affixed to the electric box, the sign or symbol shall be affixed to the exterior wall of the residential structure at a point immediately adjacent to the electric box; and
(2) if no electric box is attached to the exterior of the residential structure or if, in the opinion of the authority having jurisdiction, the electric box attached to the exterior of the building is not located in a place likely to be seen by firefighters or other first responders responding to a fire or other emergency at the residential structure, the sign or symbol required by this Part shall be affixed to the exterior of the residential structure in a location approved by the authority having jurisdiction as a location likely to be seen by firefighters or other first responders responding to a fire or other emergency at the residential structure.
(c) The sign or symbol required by this Part shall be affixed prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy or a certificate of compliance. The authority having jurisdiction shall not issue a certificate of occupancy or certificate of compliance until the sign or symbol required by this Part shall have been affixed.
(d) The property owner shall be responsible for maintaining the sign or symbol required by this Part and shall promptly replace any such sign or symbol that is affixed to an electric box when any change or modification is made to such electric box. The property owner shall promptly replace the sign or symbol required by this Part if such sign or symbol is removed or becomes damaged, faded, worn or otherwise less conspicuous to firefighters or other first responders responding to a fire or other emergency at the residential structure. The property owner shall keep the area in the vicinity of the sign or symbol required by this Part clear of all plants, vegetation, and other obstructions that may hide or obscure such sign or symbol or otherwise cause such sign or symbol to be less conspicuous to firefighters or other first responders responding to a fire or other emergency at the residential structure.
(e) The sign or symbol indicating the utilization of truss type construction, pre-engineered wood construction and/or timber construction shall comply with the requirements of this subdivision.
(1) The sign or symbol shall consist of a circle six inches (152.4 mm) in diameter, with a stroke width of 1/2 inch (12.7 mm). The background of the sign or symbol shall be reflective white in color. The circle and contents shall be reflective red in color, conforming to Pantone matching system (PMS) #187.
(2) The sign or symbol shall be of sturdy, non-fading, weather-resistant material; provided, however, that a sign or symbol applied directly to a door or sidelight may be a permanent non-fading sticker or decal.
(3) The sign or symbol shall contain an alphabetic construction type designation to indicate the construction type of the residential structure, as follows:
(i) if the residential structure is subject to the provisions of the IRC, the construction type designation shall be “V”; and
(ii) if the residential structure is subject to the provisions of the IBC, the construction type designation shall be “I”, “II”, “III”, “IV” or “V” to indicate the construction classification of the structure under section 602 of the IBC.
(4) The sign or symbol shall contain an alphabetic location designation to indicate the locations(s) containing truss type construction, pre-engineered wood construction and/or timber construction structural components, as follows:
(i) F shall mean floor framing, including girders and beams;
