Stop exposing first responders to the hazards associated with incendiary strike flares and the environmental contamination they cause.
The incendiary strike flare, that has been used for many years, is now seen as a liability by many emergency service departments. This outdated technology is toxic to the environment, poses a risk of fire, and personal safety.
These flares are NOT cost-effective and carry a lot of risk. First responders typically ignite 10 incendiary flares per hour following an accident. At $89.95 per Beacon-4-Life light and $2 per flare, the light pays for itself in about 22 hours at accident sites. That doesn't even consider the additional costs associated with injuries and fires, and the multiple functions of this one device.
· Multi-functional warning beacon, flashlight, work light, and SOS signal.
· No heat, sparks or flames.
· No noxious smoke.
· No burned skin or uniforms.
· No risk of igniting accidental fires.
· No environmental damage.
· No wasted taxpayer dollars on single-use & dangerous strike flares.
Beacon-4-Life is a multi-functional warning beacon, flashlight, work light, and S.O.S. signal.
First responders ignite five or more incendiary strike flares for a single accident every 30 minutes. It only takes one incendiary strike flare discarded into a water source to contaminate 240,000 gallons of water to a level of 4µ/L. Incendiary strike flares can be a significant source of perchlorate contamination to both surface and ground water. And unburned flares improperly disposed of can contaminate water with perchlorate up to 2,000 times more than completely burned flares.*

Our roadways are littered with hazardous waste from spent incendiary flares after roadside accidents
