Cranbrook, BC (November 3, 2023) - Ice is starting to form on our local water bodies as colder temperatures begin to settle in.
The public must be aware of the dangers of thin ice, especially along Joseph Creek, Elizabeth, and Idlewild Lakes. Thin ice creates many risks 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. Protecting your pets from open water bodies and thin ice is also important for their safety.
