Operating a Handheld Flare

How to Activate a Hand-held FlareWhile we all hope we never need to actually use flares - it's important to know how to do so. Here's what to do:

  1. Remove plastic lid to expose scratch surface on cap
  2. Twist and remove cap, exposing the black flare igniter button
  3. Gently strike the scratch surface of cap against the black button of the flare (similar to striking a match), while pointing away from face and body.
