STAY OFF THE ICE


With spring officially here and temperatures warming up around or above 32 degrees, dangerous ice conditions prevail across the state. State Fire Marshal Richard Miller is recommending that Michiganders to stay off the ice. “Thawing ice conditions on Michigan’s lakes, rivers and ponds are dangerous and unpredictable this time of year,” said Miller.  “Don’t take risks by going out onto any ice-covered waters that can lead to tragedy.” “Especially keep the kids and pets off the ice, and never try to do rescues yourself.  About 85 percent of ice emergency 9-1-1 calls are triggered by people trying to save a pet who fell through the ice,” he said.  According to Miller, you simply can’t guess about ice thickness.  “If you do run into trouble, call 9-1-1.  Fire, rescue, EMS, and law enforcement personnel are trained to get you off the ice and are equipped for ice rescue, including the rescue of pets.
