Regina Fire & Protective Services Reminds Residents to Stay Off the Ice
Although temperatures have been warmer than normal, Regina Fire & Protective Services reminds residents to stay off the ice on all bodies of water, including Wascana Lake and Creek, storm channels and retention ponds.
Changes in air temperatures mean the thickness of the ice can change quickly and without warning. Recreational activities such as walking, skiing, skating, or playing on any body of water are strongly discouraged. Ice that looks safe may not be.
When walking close to bodies of water, dogs must be kept on a leash. If a pet breaks through the ice, do not attempt a rescue as you will be putting yourself and others in danger.
Residents looking for recreation and leisure activities this winter are encouraged to visit Regina.ca/recreation for a complete list of affordable and accessible programs.
If you see anyone, particularly children, close to thin ice, call Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500. In an emergency involving people or pets, call 9-1-1.
