Ice Safety and Rescue (ISR) 2 day course

Do you enjoy paddling during the winter, hot tenting, snow shoeing across frozen lakes and other winter activities that might benefit from an ice safety course? I certainly do and sometimes wonder if I am properly trained to handle an emergency or even have proper practice to avoid an unwanted incident.

This winter I am looking forward to participating in an ice safety course with Boreal River Rescue in the Peterborough area.  This is a two day course with 4-6 hours online to be completed beforehand.
