The Northeast OPP is making sure residents are staying safe while venturing out onto ice over the coming winter months. From ice fishing to snow mobiling, there are many factors to consider.

The OPP says anyone travelling onto ice covered waters are advised to travel with an experienced outdoors enthusiast, with knowledge of the thickness and currents. Police say conditions can change on ice from day to day, sometimes hour to hour and always place to place.

The OPP says always be wary of ice conditions as we move into the winter months.
