Safe Disposal of Expired Flares

Do NOT believe ANYONE, no matter how official appearing, that tells you that you can discharge a distress flare legally - YOU CANNOT!!!

The discharge of a visual distress signal is illegal, except in case of actual distress.

The discharge of expired flares is potentially dangerous
To date, flares can not be recycled but special care should be taken with their disposal. Throwing flares in your household trash can cause a dangerous situation and setting off old flares can result in false distress reports.

To dispose of expired flares contact your local county public works department, police or fire department. Alternatively check with a local boating education group such as your local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla. They often use old flares for educational purposes.

If you live in the Point Pleasant Beach, N.J. area you can arrange to drop off your expired flares at USCG Coast Guard Station Manasquan Inlet, 61 Inlet Drive, Point Pleasant Beach. N.J.

For an appointment to drop off your expired flares, call the Flotilla 16-07 Hotline at: 732-785-2618 

RBS AffairsState Boating Safety Resources

The Recreational Boating Safety Affairs Department (RBS), under the program guidance of the U.S. Coast Guard Office of Boating Safety and the direction of the Auxiliary Directorate of Recreational Boating Safety, provides assistance to Coast Guard units, Auxiliary National Departments and Auxiliary District organizations in their efforts to
promote and support recreational boating safety programs.

RBS Affairs provides both informational and fiscal resource services to the Auxiliary membership. In addition, the RBS Affairs provides liaison with State Boating Law Administrators and other recreational boating safety organizations, i.e., State, Federal
and the public sector.

The National Auxiliary Boating Department has launched a new website called "AuxBDeptWiki" The site is based on wiki software that allows users to contribute their ideas for promoting Recreational Boating Safety without being experts in building webpages.
