CONCORD, N.H. - The New Hampshire Fish and Game is holding a public hearing on proposed rules to establish a voluntary hike safe card.

A press release says a hike safe card would exempt a person from liability for the cost of a search and rescue response due to a person's negligence. The cards are voluntary to have.

The proposed rules would govern the online purchase and issuance of the cards. The program would become effective on January 1, 2015.

The public hearing is set for Monday, September 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H.

Written comments must be received by September 15, 2014. Send to: comments@wildlife.nh.gov (use subject line “Comments on Hike Safe Card rules”); or write to Executive Director, N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301; or fax to (603)-271-1438.
