On Water Emergencies

Contact the U.S. Coast Guard via VHF Radio Channel 16 or (if available) local fire/police resources by calling 911.

Navigation Hazards

The Coast Guard relies on the input of the maritime community to self-report hazards to navigation, such as discrepant buoys and beacons, or debris. There are several options to report waterway hazards: Use the Aids to Navigation Discrepancy Report; call the Navigation Center at +1.703.313.5900; call your local Coast Guard command center via VHF radio Channel 16.

Expired Flares

The US Coast Guard, and the US Coast Guard Auxiliary are no longer permitted to accept out-dated marine flares and/or pyrotechnics (meteors, orange smoke, etc.). Local fire services or police agencies are most likely sources for advice or assistance on proper disposal of such devices in your area. Out-dated flares are considered explosive hazardous waste, and should never be thrown overboard, activated in the marine environment, or placed in household trash. In addition, flares contain perchlorate (a pollutant & likely human carcinogen) so soaking them in water as a means of disposal is not a viable solution. Please do not contact us regarding these devices. Contact your local city or county fire agency for advice.
