Cape Lazo Power and Sail Squadron and Wills Marine Supply Store are hosting an upcoming Safety Equipment Education and Flare Disposal Day.
If your flares have a manufacture date of 2012 or earlier, they have or will expire this year.
To help boaters dispose of expired flares in a safe and environmentally responsible manner, the two businesses are holding the event on Saturday, May 14.
The event offers the opportunity to learn about required safety equipment. Attendees can bring in outdated flares to be properly disposed of, free of charge.
The event will take place at Wills Marine Supply Store at 103-1797 Comox Ave. in Comox. It runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
