Plan and Prepare


We all know it:  Good planning makes all of the difference, so here are a few tools to inform your planning efforts and encourage good choices.

NFCT Brochures:

Wear It! Life Jackets Matter by NFCT with Kokatat & the American Canoe Association

Cold Water Survival by NFCT with Kokatat & the American Canoe Association

Paddler's Safety Checklist by NFCT with L.L. Bean & the American Canoe Association

Other Resources:

Our friends at NRS have an excellent set of Gear Checklists for a variety of whitewater, flatwater, canoe, kayak, and fishing adventures.

We highly recommend viewing "Preparing for and Surviving Cold Water" , a slide show created by Paul Travis, Master Maine Guide.
