The United States Coast Guard (USCG) regularly conducts flares training, as the main picture clearly shows.

It depicts Coast Guard Lt. j. g. Jake Yallowitz and Petty Officer 3rd Class Arik Pulsifer conducting pyrotechnics training using a red flare aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Active on the Pacific Ocean.

The USCG training allows the crews to expend unused flares before expiration and also maintain qualifications.
