Buy state’s Hike Safe Card for summer hiking season

CONCORD – As the summer hiking season gets underway, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department reminds outdoor enthusiasts to buy their Hike Safe Card before they hit the trails.

Voluntary Hike Safe Cards are available from the Fish and Game Department. Buy the card to support Fish and Game search and rescue efforts and be exempt from liability for repaying search and rescue costs in New Hampshire (unless caused by reckless or intentional behavior).

Hike Safe Cards may be purchased at www.nhfishandgame.com/HikeSafe.aspx, at Fish and Game headquarters in Concord or by using a print-and-mail application available at www.nhfishandgame.com/safe.

The cards are $25 for an individual or $35 for a family (parents and minor children), and are good through the calendar year. For more information, www.wildnh.com/safe.
