Have Your Flares Expired?

If your flares have a manufacture date of 2017 or earlier, they have or will expire this year. 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.
