Officials Warn Of Dangerous Ice Conditions After Dog Rescued

(Rapid City, SD) — First responders are warning people to be careful around frozen bodies of water as temperatures fall below freezing. Rapid City Fire Department Lieutenant Hunter Harlan spoke over the weekend after a dog was rescued from broken ice at Memorial Park. Lieutenant Harlan said ice rescues by his department are rare because people usually get out on their own, but they pose a high risk. Officials say during activities on ice, never step on the ice if it’s less than four-inches thick, make sure electronics are sealed in a waterproof bag, and always make sure someone knows where you are and when you are due back.
