I called the CG and was told that they recommended setting off flairs for practice. He said to just call them on VHS or cell phone and tell them your position and time of firing so any reports could be safely ignored.

He said he does it all the time.
As he said "when you have 5 minutes to live and are in 30 degree water it is not the time to start reading the directions.
