June 8, 2012
SHOOT/FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING
Wondering what to do with all those outdated flares? The Squadron has
scheduled a flare shoot for Saturday, June 8, at 1300. Fire
extinguishing demo to follow. It will be a
joint activity with the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club, on their property, and will
be approved by both the U.S. Coast Guard and the
Sturgeon Bay Fire Chief.
Coast Guard will have airspace cleared so that we can burn flares and learn the proper technique in a supervised venue. In addition,
the Fire Department will set controlled fires on the Yacht Club grounds so
that attendees can learn proper fire extinguisher handling.
is a great hands-on event that will be open to the public. Letís
continue to promote all aspects of safety to area boaters throughout the
season, so come on out and participate! For more information contact
Alan Wentworth or at 920 336-3274.
If you have out-dated flares, you may drop them off for disposal.
There will be containers for these old flares.
