Marine Flares

Traditional pyrotechnic flares have been around for 150+ years, with few changes since their initial antiquated design. In these articles, you will learn the vast history of pyrotechnic signal flares, which may date back as early as the 1200s, in addition to the numerous ways in which local, federal, and international governments are seeking to eliminate traditional signal flares.

For a lifelong, safer alternative, we at Sirius Signal suggest the lightweight, buoyant SOS Distress Light visual distress signal. Designed, engineered, patented, and produced in the USA, the electronic flare meets all USCG Federal Requirements for carriage of DAY and NIGHT Visual Distress Signals, when combined with the included daytime visual distress signal.
