Flare Disposal

Regarding your December 2011 PS Advisor on expired flares: I am a member of the Kennebec River Sail and Power Squadron in Maine; we dispose of expired flares by using them in a picnic/educational session. We gather annually at a safe place (with clearance from the fire department and police) and allow members to practice firing flares and other signals. It’s a great time and a great educational opportunity.
