CONCORD - New Hampshire Fish and Game is now selling Hike Safe cards for 2015.
These insurance-type cards are available for $25 per person or $35 for a family.
Fish and Game's Assistant Chief of Law Enforcement, Kevin Jordan, says this is a way to offset the high cost of search and rescue efforts. One rescue mission can cost a upward of $60,000.
According to Jordan, the state budgets $190,000 for search and rescue, but the average of what they spend is close to $350,000 annually.
Jordan says over 100 cards have already been sold. They are only available online at wildnh.com/safe.
