Pyrotechnics are an essential part of a boat's safety equipment, as they help rescue agencies and other people detect you more easily in the case of an on board emergency. Pyrotechnics include hand signals, smoke signals, as well as, parachute signals. Parachute signals are different from other signal flares, as they reach a great height and drop very slowly by means of a small parachute.

Before Use

Ensure that the crew of your boat knows where the flares are stowed. For safety reason, the crew should read the instructions printed on the flares -it will be too late on a stormy night!  All flares must show their expiry date and be replaced when necessary.
