Reminder to hand in expired flares

04 Jul 2013

Expired flares should be handed into 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).

On Saturday June 29 members of Ceduna SES took advantage of a donation of almost expired emergency flares to host a demonstration at Puckridge Boat Ramp.

For further details go to the West Coast Sentinel article.

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