Dangers of Thin Ice

“The only truly safe ice is at your local skating rink!” said State Fire Marshal Stephen Coan. “There are several variables that affect the strength of ice on bodies of water, so many that no ice can ever be declared completely safe, especially running water in streams, brooks, rivers,” said Coan. Air temperature changes continuously, resulting in thawing and re-freezing. In addition, uneven ice thickness, water currents, tree stumps, rocks and groundwater springs can weaken the ice.
