WHFD Conducts Flare Training
By Assistant Chief Christopher Koretski
September 17, 2022

On Saturday 9/17 the Watch Hill Fire Department conducted training for the membership of the Baldwin Yacht Club visiting Watch Hill on marine flare deployment. The club members were able to see first hand what an emergency flare looks like when deployed as well as launch their own flares.

The WHFD is always accepting donations of expired flares and is always happy to instruct our community members and visitors on proper deployment techniques.

Special thanks to our Firefighters for volunteering their time for this demo and to our partners at the US Coast Guard for allowing this training to occur.

Units: Engine 102, Marine 100
