A reminder to residents to take precautions when ice skating on ponds and lakes surrounding our community. Please do not assume it is safe if you see others on the ice. The Red Cross recommends a minimum thickness of 8 inches to accommodate multiple people on frozen lakes and ponds.
More information on ice safety can be found, here: https://www.redcross.ca/training-and-certification/swimming-and-water-safety-tips-and-resources/swimming-boating-and-water-safety-tips/ice-safety.
Play safe out there!
