Lake Ice Safety Reminders
With the temperatures dropping and weather patterns changing, winter is just around the corner. Accompanying these changes in temperature usually comes a change in scenery for residents of Daybreak - a frozen Oquirrh Lake. While the ice across the lake may look thick, it is most often quite thin and poses a serious safety risk to anyone getting too close. Below are a few safety tips we encourage all Daybreak residents to consider over the next few months.
- Keep pets on a leash at all times.
- Keep children at arm's length at all times while around the lake.
- Avoid walking on docks when the lake is frozen.
- Never attempt a rescue of a person or pet that has fallen into the lake. Always call 911 and wait for the first responders to arrive.
