💥FLARE OUT! 💥
Coast Guard members gathered together to conduct a pyro shoot this morning to train members in the use of flares esp. onboard Coast Guard vessels.
Red flares and orange smoke 💨 are both internationally recognized signs of distress, while white flares are useful for marking a position or illuminating a search area.
The following units participated in the training:
USCG ANT Fort Macon
Coast Guard Station Fort Macon
U.S. Coast Guard Station Emerald Isle, N.C.
