Bob,
I don't know if Cap has responded to you yet but this is what I'm seeing 
from one of my books:

/c = Incident Command Post
B0 = Incident Base
C0 = Camp
// = Helispot (Identify with location and/or number)
H0 = Helibase
R0 = Repeater/Mobile Relay
S0 = Staging Area (Identify by name)

Below here are listed as optional...
T0 = Telephone
F0 = Fire Station
W0 = Water Source (Identify as pond, cistern, hydrant)
X0 = Mobile Weather Unit

These are what is in my ICS Map Display Symbols chapter.  Being we are 
talking ICS I'm hesitant to say we could substitute these symbols for 
existing symbols that may better represent what is being marked (like 
using /d for the fire station vice F0.  Those things should be worked 
out way ahead of time with the supported agency to make sure everyone is 
on the same page.

73,
Eric W4OTN
