The Joint Marine Unit wants the public to know the signs of a vessel in distress.

Marine Commander Leo Anglin told Cayman 27 there have been several reports of false flares in recent times.

Thursday night, (13 October) The Marine Unit will be demonstrating for the public exactly what a distress signal flare looks like. The public will be able to see it from anywhere along Seven Mile Beach.

“At 7:30 pm Thursday this week, there will be a flare discharged on Seven Mile Beach for the full purpose of educating the public as to what a flare looks like,” said Inspector Anglin.

The flare will be red in colour, and be set off from approximately three miles offshore.

9-1-1 operators at the public safety communications centre have been made aware of the Thursday demonstration.
