Safe disposal of flares

31 Aug 2012

In South Australia flares that become outdated must be delivered to a police station for disposal.

 All flares have an expiry date located on the flare and must be replaced on or prior to that date.

The safe disposal of expired flares is essential to prevent any injury from unintended, or deliberate ignition/firing in a non-emergency situation, (e.g. flares are not to be disposed of in rubbish bins, landfills, etc).

Information on when you should carry flares and how to dispose of the is available on the sa.gov.au/boatingmarine website.
