Be careful on the ice

Category: 

Fort Frances OPP is reminding people to take extra caution when travelling on local lakes and rivers.

With the recent cold conditions, people are starting to travel on lakes that still have open water and ice that is unsafe.

Snow, wind, thawed and re-frozen ice, and under-flowing water can cause unseen changes in the ice quality.

Police advise people to check ice conditions prior to travelling across lakes and rivers, and stay on marked trails whenever possible.
