Flares will not be tolerated

BOATERS have been warned the illegal lighting of flares will not be tolerated.

Kiama MP Gareth Ward said it was irresponsible and illegal to release flares unless in an emergency, with unplanned bushfires a possible consequence.

“Roads and Maritime Services boating safety officers will be out on the water and National Parks and Wildlife Service rangers will carry out regular patrols of national park areas during summer to ensure there is no misuse of flares.
