Flares are an ideal light and signaling source in an emergency situation because they warn oncoming vehicles about the potential danger in the area. The extremely bright glow of a road flare illuminates surrounding objects, and the light can be seen clearly in any weather and even during snow and rain storms.

You can use emergency flares at any time throughout the day or night to keep your accident scene well lit, and some of the benefits these devices offer include:

  • Reduce speed with emergency flares in the area of an accident site.
  • Expand the depth of a safety zone to keep pedestrians and drivers safer.
  • Increase lateral separation from passing traffic compared to not using signal flares.

Our traffic flares are the perfect choice if you need to increase the visibility of an accident scene and they are highly effective at warning oncoming traffic about the potential danger in the area. It is not difficult to use a road flare, and our team is ready to answer any questions you have about our products!

Why Road Flares Are A Great Safety Device

Making a hazardous site as visible as possible is one of the first steps to controlling an accident scene. It is essential to create a "safety zone" around an accident site to ensure the safety of emergency responders, victims of the accident, and passing traffic.

Unlike other products, emergency flares are a perfect solution for police, fire, and emergency responders because beacons work in almost any environmental condition like rain, snow, wind, and even fog.

Another reason road flares are an essential piece of any emergency toolkit is that they are universally recognized as the signal for an emergency in the area. When an approaching driver sees a flare in the road, they will know that there is a hazard in the area and they need to slow down and pay attention.

Along with being waterproof and wind-resistant, our safety flares are self-contained. This means that you do not need additional items like an energy source like batteries or the other light source like a light bulb to ignite the flare. Our emergency flares are engineered from top to bottom to stand up to the unique needs of an emergency situation.


Tips For Using An Emergency Flare

Road flares are an essential part of any emergency kit for any safety professionals. Here are a few tips to make sure you get the most out of your safety flares while also keeping your accident zone as visible and safe as possible.

  • Try to place flares at least 100 steps behind the accident site towards oncoming traffic as a warning for drivers. Make sure there is no flammable materials or dangers in the area.

  • Hold the flare away from your body and point the flare away from yourself as you light the safety flare.

  • Remove the cap of the flare and strike the end of the flare with the rough side of the flare cap.

  • Point the lighted flare down towards the ground when carrying it and walking. This will prevent burning residues from hitting your hand or clothing.

  • Place the flare on the ground gently in an area that will prevent the flare from rolling away.
