Ice conditions in the Battlefords “unsafe”, NBFD urges people to stay clear

Ice on the North Saskatchewan River and area bodies of water is thin and breaking up – which means that it is dangerous to drive on, snowmobile on, and walk on, notes the North Battleford Fire Chief, Lindsay Holm, who notes that the current ice conditions are unsafe for this reason.

“Our Fire Department is monitoring ice conditions in the area,” commented Chief Holm. “It’s breaking up very quickly and we anticipate that over the next few weeks, there could be some flooding in low lying areas, depending on water flow from the west. We expect the speed of the current to pick up over the next couple of weeks and we encourage people to not only avoid stepping onto the ice, but to remain vigilant near the riverbanks.”   

The City of North Battleford and the North Battleford Fire Department thanks the public for their cooperation in advance for avoiding nearby river systems in the interest of safety.
