All response units carry six (6) reflective traffic cones. They are used to create safe zones when working on or near highways or to define the workspace around emergency operations where only active responders should enter. Smaller cones may be used to designate "hot zones" near workspaces. The Incident Support Unit (ISU-1) also carries "drop cones" and MUTCD advance warning signs.
