Orion Alert/ Locate kit
The Orion® Alert/Locate Signal Kit contains 3 hand-held signals for making rescuers aware of your emergency and to locate your position. Kit includes 1 red aerial flare, 1 orange smoke signal, and 1 red signal flare/campfire starter. Red aerial flare produces a bright red signal that burns for 7 seconds, reaching up to 450 ft. Orange smoke signal produces environmentally-safe, dense orange smoke cloud that burns for 1 minute. Red signal flare burns at 3400ÁF for 5 minutes and is a great emergency fire starter. These signals are all waterproof, have self-contained ignition systems (no matches required), and are great day or nighttime signals. Ideal for paddle sports, camping, backpacking, and many other outdoor pursuits as well.
- Convenient, self-contained signal kit
- Contains 3 signals to alert rescuers and locate your position

- Dense orange smoke signal - burns for 1 minute

Red Aerial Flares
-Includes 3 X skyblazer Orion/ Twin Star flares
Aerial flares should be fired after sighting or hearing a potential rescue vessel. To attract attention to your distress situation the U.S. Coast Guard recommends that you fire 2 aerial flares, one immediately after the other, so rescuers can confirm the sighting and the direction of the signal. Parachute flares do not need to be fired in twos since a single parachute flare has adequate burn time(25 to 30 seconds) to confirm sighting and position.

Handheld Marine Red Signal Flares
These flares meet the US Coast Guard requirements, and are waterproof with a built-in protective handle. Includes four handheld flares.
Be prepared for a Vessel Safety Inspection: Visual distress signals must be carried on all boats which are operated on the high seas, coastal waters (including the Great Lakes), the territorial seas and all waters directly connected to the Great Lakes or the territorial seas up to a point where the waters are less than two miles wide.
Have enough flares: Handheld signal flares are intended as homing signals to pinpoint your position. The surface-to-surface sighting range on water is approximately three to five miles, depending on boat elevation. If a rescuer is five miles away and running at 20 miles per hour, it will take 15 minutes to reach you. Therefore, you should have at least 12 minutes (total burn time) of signals onboard to maintain a strong homing signal until help arrives.

When to Signal
Aerial flares, and other "one-time" signals, should be fired only after sighting or hearing a potential rescuer. Experts recommend that once an aircraft has been sighted, one flare should be fired, then a second flare fired immediately after the first to let search teams confirm the sighting and direction of the signal. Remember, search and rescue missions often establish grid search patterns, which means you may see the same aircraft 2 to 3 times coming from different directions. Do not waste aerial flares if the aircraft has initially passed by you. Carrying extra pyrotechnic signals will improve your chances of being sighted.

4 Rules of Signaling
- Conserve your signals until you are reasonably sure of being sighted. Wait until you see or hear a vessel or aircraft before using "one-time" signals.
- Stay with the boat if it is safe to do so. A boat is easier to spot than a swimmer.
- U.S. Coast Guard-approved marine signals to improve your chances, but anything that works is good. USE COMMON SENSE! Shout, flash your running lights, wave a piece of clothing, use your windshield as a mirror, flash a flashlight, ANYTHING that's available to attract attention. Above all, DON'T PANIC!
- Familiarize yourself with your signals before you leave the shore. Time is important in any emergency and shouldn't be spent reading instructions.
