Orion Signals Orange Handheld Marine Smoke Flares
A cloud of thick, orange smoke is one of the most effective signaling indicators you can process. Signaling is all about contrast and visibility to potential rescuers. The USCG has approved these smoke signals to be an effective day-time rescue signal device. Each flare creates a large dense cloud of orange smoke for up to a minute, but the cloud of smoke lasts longer, depending on weather conditions. It can be seen for miles and will easily stand out to potential rescuers who aren't even aware of someone needing help or being lost. A perfect addition to your search and rescue tools, as it may also indicate to the distressed where the SAR's team is located.
