Story

Wescom Signal and Rescue, the leading global distress signal manufacturer, is holding a Flares Amnesty Day in Hampshire, UK, on Saturday 1 May.

The May Day Flares Amnesty, from 8.30am-2.30pm, at the Premier Marinas Ltd, Building, 10 Bridge Rd, Swanwick, Southampton SO31 1ZH, is for non-commercial participants. There is a one-pack limit of expired flares per household.

Each participant is invited to make a cash donation, which will be split between the Ellen MacArthur Trust, Jubilee Sailing Trust, and Wetwheels Foundation through our JustGiving pages. We are also supporting the Sail2Help charity. You can donate to them through this crowdfunding page https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/tim-davies-9643.

The event is being held in conjunction with YouBoat Chandlery and Lalizas UK, which distributes Wescom’s well-known Pains Wessex and Comet Marine flares.

Wescom plans to arrange similar Flares Amnesty Days at Lymington, Gosport and an event to coincide with Southampton Boat Show. Dates and times are to be confirmed.

Wescom’s Chief Executive Officer, Ross Wilkinson, says, “The May Day Flares Amnesty applies to all brands of pyro and leisure users can purchase new Pains Wessex and Comet Marine flares to replace them at YouBoat Chandlery.

“We will ensure the Time-Expired Pyrotechnics (TEP) are safely disposed of in accordance with the regulations, as well as raising much-needed money for charity.”

Wescom Signal and Rescue, which is headquartered in Havant, Hampshire, is the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of SOLAS, MED and USCG-approved pyrotechnic marine distress signals to the commercial and leisure marine markets.

As a manufacturer of lifesaving products, Wescom is committed to safety, quality, and reliability.
