Keep off the Ice

Spring weather is upon us and warm weather conditions can quickly change the thickness of the ice without warning.


Regina Fire & Protective Services reminds residents to stay off all bodies of water, including Wascana Lake and creek, storm channels and detention ponds.


Residents should not walk, ski, skate or play on any body of water. If you see anyone, particularly children, close to thin ice, call Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500. Parents and guardians are asked to talk with children about this important safety rule.


Remember to keep dogs on a leash when close to bodies of water. If a pet breaks through the ice, do not attempt to rescue it as you will be putting yourself and others in danger.


In an emergency involving people or pets, call 9-1-1.
