In most cases flashers can be configured as coils. You can use coil_player to pulse/flash them. Alternatively, you can configure them as lights and use light_player or flasher_player to control them.

Here is an example:

# configure the flasher as coil
coils:
    flasher_01:
        number: 4                # this number depends on your hardware
        default_pulse_ms: 40     # pulse duration to use if no specified elsewhere
        max_hold_power: 1.0      # needed if you want to use flasher and light_player

# you can flash the flasher using flasher player
coil_player:
  flash_coil:
    flasher_01:
      action: pulse              # will use the default 40ms pulse

# create a light which is backed by a coil (optional if you want to use light_player and flasher_player)
lights:
    flasher_01:
        number: flasher_01       # name of your coil
        platform: drivers        # use a coil

# use the light to flash the flasher
flasher_player:
   flash_flasher_01:
      flasher_01: 100ms
