Ice Rescue

Call 9-1-1 if someone falls through the ice!

If someone falls through the ice, it’s important to remember – DO NOT go on the ice to try and pull them out as you will likely end up falling in too. The best thing you can do is to get help fast!

Chestermere Fire Services is trained in Aquatic Rescue (both water and ice). If you witness an emergency call 9-1-1.

Other skating opportunities

The City maintains several outdoor rinks on land and on the Lake. Lake ice is more consistent than storm ponds, since it is not constantly flowing. Parks staff conduct weekly ice measurement at the south end of the Lake, Sunset Park, Anniversary Park and Cove Beach.
