Such distress signals must be stored in a portable watertight container labeled “DISTRESS FLARES.” The service use of the distress signals is limited to a period of 42 months from manufacturer’s date. With the exception of unpowered vessels such as canoes and kayaks, all Class A vessels will be equipped with USCG-approved Visual Distress Signals as listed in the EPA Vessel Safety: Deck Safety Equipment mobile app.

“I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.”
