The lakes, ponds, and rivers, throughout Channahon and Minooka, sometimes freeze during winter months. Residents may be eager to start skating, playing hockey, ice fishing, and enjoying other winter activities. However, frozen bodies of water can be dangerous. Discuss with your family that the safest thing to do is to stay away from these areas.

Here are a few steps if someone falls through the ice.
🧊 Do not go out onto the ice to try to rescue the person or a pet. Instead, REACH-THROW-GO:
🧊 Try to REACH the victim from shore. Extend your reach with a branch, oar, pole, or ladder to try to pull the victim to safety.
🧊 If unable to reach the victim, THROW them something to hold onto (such as a rope, jumper cables, tree branch, or life preserver).
🧊 GO for help or call 911 immediately.

Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to honor America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit Foundation has developed and expanded programs that fulfill that mandate. Our mission is to honor and remember America’s fallen fire heroes and to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives and work within the fire service community to reduce firefighter deaths and injuries.

Each October, the Foundation sponsors the official national tribute to all firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year. Thousands attend the weekend activities held at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The Weekend features special programs for survivors and coworkers along with moving public ceremonies.
