Channel 16 in Los Angeles has Coast Guard announcements of non-emergency flare shootings all the time, usually for movie filming. The USCG gives the time and the place of the firing starting about 3 hours in advance, with announcements every 30 minutes until the firing time. It all seems pretty simple and straightforward as long as you tell them ahead of time what you are doing and you are not endangering yourself or others.
