Same size, twice as bright, the Beacon Pro is safe for anyone to use — from law enforcement officers on motorcycle patrol to civilians in personal safety situations. Flares are commonly used by police, fire, military and industrial sectors for accident scenes, lane closures and helicopter landing zones; and by civilians for car troubles, tire changes and vehicle location. Unlike incendiary/strike flares, Flare Alert LED beacons are completely safe. No more risk of inhaling toxic fumes, starting brush fires, igniting spilled fuel/oil, burning equipment or yourself. An environmentally responsible option compared to flares that are considered hazardous waste.
