City issues thin ice reminder

The City of Regina says thin ice conditions still exist at bodies of water and is far too unsafe.

Deputy Fire Chief Neil Sundeen water in and around the city is not even close to being safe at this time even though we have seen some colder weather recently.

“With the storm drains going into the retention ponds and into the creek systems around Regina, what may be nice and thick on any given day can erode in a very short period of time.” Sundeen said.  “With temperatures staying warm, it is very unsafe to be on the ice.”

Sundeen says with kids now off of school for the Christmas break, the thoughts of getting outside for them and others to do some physical activity will be high, but they need to stay off the ice to prevent any disasters from happening.
