Stay off ice surfaces
Regina Fire & Protective Services urges residents to stay off all bodies of water as the ice that has formed on these surfaces is very thin. This includes Wascana Lake and creek, storm channels and detention ponds in residential neighbourhoods, such as Lakeridge Park lake.
Throughout the winter season, do not walk, ski, skate or play on any body of water. Parents and guardians are asked to talk with children about this important safety rule.
We also suggest dogs be kept on leashes when close to bodies of water. If a pet breaks through the ice, do not attempt to rescue it.
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.
