Cranbrook, BC (November 1, 2022) – Ice is starting to form on our local water bodies, as colder temperatures begin to settle in.
It is important for the public to be aware of the dangers thin ice presents especially along Joseph Creek, Elizabeth, and Idlewild Lakes. Thin ice creates many dangers for adults, kids, and pets.
Please stay off the ice until it is at least six inches thick. We ask parents and caregivers to talk to their kids about the dangers thin ice presents and encourage adults to lead by example by staying off the ice, too. Keeping your pets away from open water bodies and thin ice is also important for their safety.
