AJSA Announcement Distress flares
« on: February 28, 2017, 04:11:16 PM »
There are three main types of distress flares approved for use in Western Australia. All of them must be manufactured to Australian Standard AS 2092-2004 or comply with AMSA Marine Orders Part 25.

Orange smoke flares.


These are designed for day use only and have no luminosity. They emit a cloud of orange smoke. Orange hand-held flares burn for about 60 seconds.
The buoyant canister, which is safe for use in petrol or oil covered water, burns for about three minutes.

The potential sighting range by day is 4 km, although this can drop to less than 1 km in a fresh breeze; however, these flares are especially visible from aircraft, even on windy days.

Red hand-held flares


These distress flares are designed for use both night and day and burn for about 45 seconds at 15,000 candle power.
The potential sighting range at night is 10 - 12 km and about 4 - 6 km during the day.

Red parachute distress rocketsRed parachute rockets are designed for use both night and day.

The rockets project a rocket to 300 metres high and then deploy a parachute-suspended red flare, which burns for about 40 seconds at 30,000 candle power.
The potential sighting range is 15 km by day and 40 km at night.


Remember to always check the condition of your Flares as they can become damaged easily on a Jet Ski
