Ice Safety

Tuesday January 21, 2020

Whether you enjoy ice fishing, snowmobiling, or walks in the Winter Wonderland, the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency wants you to always remember some safety tips when crossing lakes or rivers that are covered in ice.

What thickness of ice is “safe”???

Planning on using an “Ice Shanty”? About 4-6 inches of good clear or blue/black ice is good, but if you are with more than one person, you should wait until the ice is 6+ inches and solid.
Easy to remember tips about ice…

Be prepared with a safety plan

Above all STAY SAFE!!!
