Caution, thin ice!

The department of civil protection of the population of the administration of Magnitogorsk warns: access to the ice before the onset of stable frosts and the appearance of a solid ice cover is prohibited!

With the establishment of minus temperature, thin ice forms on the city’s water bodies, but the differences in day and night temperatures prevent it from getting stronger. Access to a body of water is life threatening.

Autumn ice becomes strong only after continuous frosty days are established, but even with a brief thaw, it loses this quality and friability appears.

Particular attention must be paid to the safety of children. Tell about the dangers, do not leave unattended and do not allow playing near ponds.

In the event of an accident, call the emergency number 112.
