Thin Ice Warning
​Kansas City, MO --- With the colder temperatures we received and the warmer temperatures on the way, Lee’s Summit Underwater Recovery, Inc. is taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of all Kansas City Metro persons who may live near retention ponds or have farm ponds / lakes near their location.
LSUR offers the following safety tips for those living near ponds and lakes:
 No ice is safe ice.
 Ice less than 4” is unsafe.
 Waterfowl and fish can keep water moving and allow for thawing or holes in the ice.
 Ice seldom freezes uniformly.
 Educate children and teens of the dangers of ice.
 If ice can’t hold a 20lb. dog it won’t hold the weight of anyone heavier.
 Snow can insulate ice causing the freezing process to slow.
 Text or Call 911 immediately

Lee’s Summit Underwater reminds residents of the Kansas City metro if you see someone or an animal fall through the ice call 911 immediately. Persons submerged in icy waters will need medical attention. Do not attempt a rescue yourself let the professionals who have been trained and have the proper equipment to do so.

To schedule an ice safety presentation for your school, youth, scout event please contact LSUR at pio@lsunderwater.org.

Join the current LSUR team members as we honor those who bravely donned their own wetsuits and dive gear in the early years of the teams organization as well as those who have served the past 50 years.
