Due to warmer weather, Norman Wells residents are urged to stay safe and keep off bodies of water at this time of year as ice conditions are unstable and unsafe.
Residents are asked to remind family and friends to be aware as safety on ice is a personal responsibility.
Daily temperatures are warming gradually and deteriorating ice thickness and strength. While ice may appear like normal winter ice, it may be very thin and no longer support people and objects, such as snowmobiles and vehicles. In case of emergency please call 9-1-1.
