天气转暖 约克区警察局提醒市民留意河湖结冰情况注意安全

来源:约克区警察局   更新:2018-02-23 15:39:01   作者:约克区警察局

York Regional Police would like to remind residents that continuing warm weather will create unpredictable ice conditions on our lakes and rivers.

On February 22, 2018, at approximately 2 a.m., an officer on patrol observed a man in distress at the side of the road in Jackson’s Point in the Town of Georgina. The officer determined that two men had escaped their vehicle after it fell through the ice. The men were suffering from hypothermia which presented as life-threatening at the time they were discovered. Both were transported to hospital, where one remains. The York Regional Police Underwater Recover Team assisted with removal of the truck.

The recent changes in weather have altered the conditions of the ice, making its stability unpredictable and inconsistent. While some sections of ice may appear to be stable, we would like to remind all citizens that ice conditions can vary drastically even in areas of close proximity and may pose significant risk.

York Regional Police would like to remind citizens of the following tips to ensure everyone’s safety while enjoying outdoor activities near bodies of water:

 Ensure you are wearing the proper clothing and an approved personal flotation device

 Parents are reminded to ensure their children’s safety by keeping them away from fast-flowing rivers and streams

 During outdoor activities, ensure you tell someone where you will be, where you parked your vehicle and what time you are expected back

 Carry a cell phone with a fully-charged battery in the event of an emergency

 Be cautious of your footing around banks of rivers and streams

 Always be prepared for the unexpected

Remember no ice is ever completely safe. Any individual enjoying recreational activities near a body of water must make a personal decision to do so, realizing that there is a degree of risk associated with this choice. It is crucial that citizens take individual responsibility in evaluating the quality of ice.

For more information and safety tips, contact the York Regional Police Marine Unit at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7321, or visit the York Regional Police website at www.yrp.ca
