I never saw these in the US, but certainly at UK airports and airfields you will often see "RVP" on a green background with a yellow border:

What is the purpose of these signs, and who/what is their intended audience?

It's a Rendezvous Point for emergency vehicles. This is from the UK's Aerodrome Model Emergency Orders (appendix B, section 1.1.1):

Rendezvous Point signs should be displayed at the point(s) designated by the Aerodrome Emergency Orders as the rendezvous point(s) for all responding Emergency Services. Signs should be clearly visible from any direction from which responding Emergency Service vehicles/ personnel are likely to approach when attending aircraft accidents/incidents within the response area defined by or cross- referenced in the Aerodrome Manual.
