Have your flares expired?
Are they about to expire?
If your flares have a manufacture date of 2013 or earlier they have or will expire this year. You can't light them, throw them in the water or in your household garbage to dispose of them.
Disposing of expired flares has been an ongoing dilemma for boaters across the country. To help boaters dispose of expired flares in a safe and environmentally responsible manner CPS-ECP and selected CIL Dealers are hosting Safety Equipment Education and Flare Disposal Days. On these days, you will be offered the opportunity to learn about required safety equipment and you can bring your outdated flares to be properly disposed of, free of charge.
This year flare disposal will be held on April 28, 2018 at:
1667 West 5th Ave
