We're in the midst of the winter months, and those planning on venturing on to the ice whether to skate or fish need to remember to be cautious
Winter means outdoor fun in the snow and on ice, and the Vegreville Fire Department is sending out the reminder to be safe.
Public Education Specialist with the Vegreville Fire Department, Sherry Haque, says to make sure the ice is thick enough to venture out on.
Haque adds that a little common sense can also go a long way.
Haque adds to look for signage that says whether the ice is safe, and indicators of others who have been on the ice recently.
