Incident Reports

Even the most well-prepared trips can have incidents – or nearly have them. PRANZ wants to keep a record of accidents and near-misses on-river so that we can find patterns of unsafe behaviour and share our learning and resources with the packrafting community. This is a no-blame, judgement-free process to improve the safety awareness of packrafting in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Sometimes rumours can spread and damage the reputation of packrafting and we want to help prevent misinformation about the sport. These reports give us clarity about what actually happened.
