Using aerial signals: Aerial flares should be fired after sighting or hearing a potential rescue vessel. To attract attention to your distress situation, the U.S. Coast Guard recommends that you fire two aerial flares--one immediately after the other--so rescuers can confirm the sighting and the direction of the signal.
