Safety Demos – Flares

The Department of Transport Marine Safety will conduct flare demos at the Perth International Boat Show, to demonstrate the safe and correct use of flares. All vessels operating outside protected waters must carry flares; and, more importantly, boat owners need to make sure they know how to use flares correctly if the need arises.

The Department of Transport Marine Safety team will also be on hand to offer safety info and advice such as:

• The different types of flares
• Know how to use flares
• Make sure flares are always readily accessible
• Store flares correctly
• Ensure they are within expiration dates
• Unauthorised use and other information

There will be at least four scheduled demonstrations across the weekend.
