On January 31st, 2019 we conducted a self rescue demonstration for members of the media on how to conduct a self rescue in the event that an individual should fall through the ice. The video has been featured by The Halliburton Highlander Newspaper. The best practice is to ensure the ice is safe before heading out thus eliminating the need to even consider a self rescue. Remember the min ice thickness that can bear the wait of a single individual with light gear traveling over it is 4 inches. This thickness though does not have a lot of room for variations in ice thickness vs load carrying ability and individuals must remember that ice thickness can very greatly do to currents, depths and climate conditions. If you spend a great deal of time playing or working on the ice it is highly recommend that you get some hands on training in a working and playing on ice course. During the course you will learn how to ensure the safety of the ice as well as have an opportunity to participate in self rescue training exercise.
