PSA- Thin Ice Levels on Local Ponds

For your safety and the safety of your loved ones, The City of Martensville and Martensville Fire Department urge you to avoid neighbourhood ponds until further notice. The recent warm weather has caused varying ice thickness on ponds and uncertain ice conditions, making it unsafe for recreational activities.

Please keep a close watch on children and pets, ensuring they stay away from these ponds. The Martensville Fire Department will be regularly monitoring and testing ice thickness. Stay tuned for notifications indicating when it's safe to use these areas for recreation.

Reports can be found on the Martensville Fire Department and City of Martensville Facebook pages as well as found at our Ice Thickness page on martensville.ca
 

In case of emergency:

If you witness someone falling through the ice or notice a person or pet in distress, immediately dial 911 and await assistance from the Fire Department.

Attempting a rescue without proper equipment can escalate the situation and put yourself at risk of needing rescue as well.

Your safety is our priority. Please cooperate and help spread this vital message to ensure everyone stays safe during this time.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
