Each time you plan a trip into the wilderness, please print and COMPLETE this Float Plan form. In the event of an emergency, the Alaska State Troopers Search and Rescue Coordinator will have the important information needed to begin a search with delays which may cost you your life. Please attach any maps of the area in which you plan to travel that would be helpful in the event a search must take place. This plan should be given to a responsible adult who can report you as missing if you do not return as scheduled. You should advise this person to keep this plan in a safe place in case it is needed.
