Re: Dangers of thin Ice
Once again the temperatures in and around the Medicine Hat area have started to dip below the freezing mark. During the early part of winter the temperature is cold enough to freeze a thin layer on top of the water but it has not frozen enough to hold the weight of a person.
There have been a number of reports of people crossing or playing on the ice already this year.
The fire service is asking that everyone please stay off the ice as it poses a significant danger to anyone on it.
