The Northeast OPP is raising awareness regarding travelling on ice covered waters over the winter months.
Police say checking ice thickness and quality before travelling across it is a must.
The OPP is asking residents not to travel alone when traversing ice, whether it’s on a snow mobile, vehicle or on foot.
Ice conditions can change rapidly from hour to hour, day to day and from place to place.
