Timaru's port will light up this evening when Coastguard South Canterbury holds a drill.

Coxswain Tony Lister will lead 30 port and marine staff in a flare training and safe operation exercise. A variety of distress, handheld, rocket and smoke flares, will be used in the practice which is planned to run between 6pm and 7pm.

Mr Lister says emergency services are aware.
