Reginans reminded to stay off thin ice

The City of Regina, along with Regina Fire and Protective Services, are warning residents to stay off thin ice as recent warm weather has changed ice thickness across the city’s bodies of water.

Some examples the city noted in a statement on Wednesday include Wascana Lake, creeks, storm channels and detention ponds.

“Residents should not walk, ski, skate or play on any body of water. If you see anyone, particularly children, close to thin ice, call Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500,” reads the city’s release.

Citizens are also being reminded to keep dogs on leashes when close to bodies of water.  “If a pet breaks through the ice, do not attempt to rescue it as you will be putting yourself and others in danger,” suggests the city. “In an emergency involving people or pets, call 9-1-1.”
