Mount Washington SummitA New Hampshire State Senate committee is considering whether to forgive hikers for any rescue expenses they’d otherwise owe New Hampshire for being negligent and getting into trouble if they buy a hike safe card, according to an article in the Concord Monitor.

The bill being considered has passed the state’s House of Representatives, and would authorize the Fish and Game Department to sell voluntary hike safe cards for $25 per person and $35 per family. People who obtain the cards would not be liable to repay rescue costs if their rescue was due to negligence on their part.
