"FIRE" in red

"SAFE" in white

As for how to do it:

I used Testors Enamel Paint markers on mine. Start the paint flow on the marker and then paint the rolled "fire" "safe" red and white respectively. Take a rag dampen with solevent or thinner and rub off excess . If ya do it right it will look perfect. Also you can trim the tips of the markers down for easier application.

I've heard of people using Crayons. Never done it myself though.
