Fire Department urges residents to stay off the ice

Winter is nearly here, and freezing temperatures have already been in the forecast. Residents are reminded to avoid walking, skating or fishing on ponds, lakes and other bodies of water as they begin to freeze, due to the real danger of falling through the ice. While the stability of ice will increase as temperatures drop, extreme caution should always be used when near to frozen bodies of water. Water temperatures can become low enough to cause hypothermia if a person were to fall in, which makes a self-rescue nearly impossible. If an individual is observed going through the ice, do not try to rescue them by going into the water. Instead, throw them something that floats, immediately call 911, and keep track of their location under the ice to communicate it to emergency responders upon their arrival - because every second counts. The Buffalo Grove Fire Department is trained on a yearly basis to rescue individuals who have fallen through the ice.
