The OPP would like to remind everyone that even though there is ice on area lakes and rivers and it may look good…BEWARE! Ice on rivers and lakes may become extremely dangerous with the warm weather and rainy conditions that our coming our way. No ice is without some risk. Always check the ice in several places before traveling onto it. Wear a floatation suit, and carry ice picks. If you go onto the ice, expect the unexpected. Be prepared to get wet and cold and be prepared to rescue yourself. Don’t endanger anyone else. If you’re travelling in a group, keep good spacing so that if one person goes into the water the others don’t.
