Be Care About Thin Ice

Sheriff's offices across the state are sharing some tips for staying safe on the ice this winter.

As a reminder, fishermen, ice skaters, and anyone walking should only do those activities when the ice is at least five inches thick. Ice should be at least eight inches thick before anyone travels by snowmobile or off-road vehicles, and remember, a lot of insurance companies do not cover passenger vehicles that go through the ice.

Officials also say you should dress for changing weather conditions, consider wearing a personal flotation device, bring safety items, and take a partner with you among other things.
