Preparing for hiking season

Time to refresh those first aid kits, fill out your Emergency Contact sheet, and double check your hiking essential 10.

In addition, New Hampshire now has the option to purchase Hike Safe insurance.  Here are some valuable links, as well as a link to an Emergency Contact sheet.  It is recommended to always carry these items in your hiking backpack.  These tips could save your life in the case of an unfortunate situation.

**a cheaper way for those over 68 is to get a permanent fishing license from the state, which gives the same rescue cost protection as the Hike Safe card. There is a $2 filing fee. The state's website has more information, and a downloadable .pdf form to fill out and send in. 

For questions, you can always call the the Fish and Game licensing office at, (603) 271-3422, or visit their Concord office.
