Walking on ice: Light & serious tips from Channel 2 & OPP

ORILLIA/MUSKOKA — It’s winter — what did you think?

Maybe we’ve been spoiled so far this “winter.”

But we’re making up for that late start with all this snow.

And ice.

Here’s a couple of videos on the latter and safety.

OPP Sgt. Steve Miles offers these tips on dealing with pressure ice.

The first is from Sgt. Steve Miles of the OPP’s Central Region Safety unit, on pressure cracks.

It was posted Feb. 7 on Lake Couchiching, just north of Orillia.


And the second, for something a little lighter — and more humorous — are seven “Tips on how to walk on ice.”

It’s a spoof by the crew at WGN Channel 9 in Chicago, as the two news anchors talk about – and act out –  the graphic posted by the city’s CBS affiliate Channel 2.


Enjoy and be safe because #OPP and #noIceIsSafeIce.

Channel 2 Chicago offers this primer on ‘Walking on Ice.’
