Police ReportsThere is no safe ice

There is no safe ice


The S.A.V.E. Team would like to remind the public that ice on area lakes and rivers is melting. Other hazards that have been under deep snow may now be exposed. Drive with care.

Recent and upcoming warm temperatures will make ice conditions extremely hazardous. As the snow melts, other dangers are exposed.

No Ice is Safe Ice

  • Ice Fishing, walking, and cross country skiing, all require at least 4” of New Clear Hard Ice
  • One snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle, requires at least 5” of New Clear Hard Ice.
  • One vehicle, car or small pick-up, requires at least 8” to 12” of New Clear Hard Ice.
  • One vehicle, medium truck, requires, at least 12” to 15” of New Clear Hard Ice.

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 be prepared to get wet and cold and 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.
