Signage colour for fire alarm warning lights

What are the guide lines/legisation on fire alarm warning lights (visiual alarms) signage? We have been told that our signs are the wrong colour, at the moment they are green with writting and we have been told they have to be red with white writing.

I was under the ilustion that they were green because they were for infomation and that the beacon was the warning, could you please clarify for us.

The visual alarm signal should be clearly distinguishable from any other visual signal used in the premises. Visual alarm signals should be white or red in colour, unless use of another colour is necessary to distinguish the signals from other visual signals.

Check out BS 5839-1:2002+A2:2008 - 17. Visual alarm signals
