Emergency LED Warning Beacons

A Better Alternative to Flares : Instant Visibility for Distress Signaling

I am fortunate to have never had a night time roadside emergency or a marine distress, but I have emergency supplies ready just in case.  I also have a portable lighting supply, blankets, tools and emergency torches or flares, but I never used one of tNightime signaling with roadside flareshese before and have no idea how to ignite one. If needed, it will no doubt take sometime to figure these out and of course hinges on having a flashlight with working batteries to read the instructions.  If I were able to ignite a roadside torch, I'd be afraid I would catch something on fire like my car or myself.

Here a reason why I say roadside emergency torches need to be replaced with something more safe and effective!

I was taking a friend for a summer joyride which took us out on the country back roads. As we started our trek back toward home base, nightfall had fallen and so had the rain, and boy how I remember how dark of a night it was. When I say it was dark, it was completely dark! My headlights did little to illuminate the road that night thanks to the cloud cover.  

As we traveled up a main route, I could see flares in the distance and figured a bad accident had just happened. As we approached the glare of the torches made it difficult for me to see the first responders and their and signals. And in an instance it happened - I went instantly blind for a few seconds. The glow of these pyrotechnic flares was similar to camera flashes and it wasn't until the very last second where I could finally see silhouettes, which as it turned out, was only yards away from hitting these emergency workers. The lingering effects of the flares stayed with me for several minutes afterwards -  like when you stare at the sun.

I often think about that moment and really wished there was a better, safer and more effective option for motorists, first responders, fire fighters, police, boaters, towing companies, truckers, mercy flight, and bikers who may have anighttime emergency.. Well, guess what? I found an awesome LED warning beacon...it's actually referred to as the E-flare™ emergency warning beacons and they're amazing!
