Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Frozen Waters

Frozen waters

Frozen ponds, rivers and lakes can be very dangerous. Keep off! Stay Off!

Our Safety tips are:

  • Don’t wander too near the edge because you could slip and fall in
  • Don't be tempted to test the thickness of the ice; it's easy to slip from the bank and fall through
  • Tell your kids not to play on the ice
  • Adults should set a good example by staying off the ice themselves
  • Protect your pets. Dog owners should ensure they keep their pets on a lead
