strobe light question

I had another birthday, but the good thing is, I got a fancy new life vest and all the toys to go with it. One of the toys is a small amber strobe light. It has on, strobe, and s.o.s. settings. Is this light only for emergencys? Could it be used as a safety light after dark? (not s.o.s. of course)

Thanks in advance
Terry
