Heroes on the Water First Responder Event – join us for a fun kayak fishing experience at no cost to first responders or family members.

Heroes on the Water (HOW) Ambassador Chapter invites first responders and their family members for a fun kayak fishing experience. Join us as we paddle, fish, heal. No experience or equipment necessary. The HOW Ambassador Chapter will provide everything needed to get our heroes out on the water.

Space is limited, as are the number of kayaks, so please sign up early! An RSVP means we do expect you as food will be provided, as well as the kayak, PFD, rod/reel and fishing tackle. Family members are welcome. Please note that we are not set up to put small children in a kayak at this time. However, bank fishing is highly encouraged!

Please fill out these 2 forms: Liability Waiver and Media Waiver. Check mark the “send me a copy of my responses” at the bottom of each waiver so you can have a record of the waivers signed.
