    There are lots of sites with free jpg or bmp pics of the symbols. You just need to google "IMO fire symbols".
    Download a sufficiently detailed one, place it as a background pic in your CAD software and trace over the symbol you need. It takes just few lines and arcs to draw a symbol.

    Yea, I've been doing that, but most of the latest symbols are PDF formate and protected. Most of the jpgs are of the old symbols :(

    I haven't had much luck locating cad files so I have been steadily drawing my own as needed. Best way as previously posted is to just reproduce them on your own. Since they don't have to be to any scale just make sure they look close enough and are the right colors. I also suggest making them blocks so you can move them around your arrangement drawings easily. There are some decent .pdf to .dxf converters out there as well that can make life easy.
