Ice may be unstable

The Chatham-Kent Police Service would like to remind citizens to use caution near any body of water that appears frozen. Fluctuating temperatures may cause the ice to be unstable.

Do not go out on the ice alone.

Ensure that you are prepared, should an emergency arise. Have communication device and safety equipment.

Use caution at all times and stay close to shore.

Remember that changing water and weather conditions can make what was strong ice much thinner and weaker. For more winter ice safety tips, see
