Town of Colchester Prescription Drug Discount Program


Green Community
Thin Ice Coverage
Good afternoon everyone,

 

The season has arrived that the temptation increases for folks, particularly kids, wanting to go out on ice covered ponds that in fact are unsafe.

 

Please, refrain from, discourage and if need be, report anyone out on ice covered bodies of water until it is determined to be safe.

 

During this time of year, animals including pets also often become trapped by thin ice,

 

DO NOT attempt a rescue by yourself, call 911.

Only minutes to exposure to extremely cold water could be life threatening.

 

AGAIN, PLEASE REPORT THESE TYPE INCIDENTS RATHER THAN ATTEMPT TO ASSIST YOURSELF.
